One factor behind PJ Washington’s improved 3-point shooting

PJ Washington’s three-point shooting has been a big topic of discussion in recent weeks. In the last four games, he’s 8-11 from the three-point line, bringing his season average to 44.9 percent, the best on the team. That’s up from 23.8 percent last season.

Yesterday, Draft Express noted the changes in PJ’s shooting form, specifically a cleaner release compared to last season:

The changes to PJ’s form have improved his numbers across the board, which has boosted his confidence. When he gets the ball with a clean look now, he doesn’t hesitate. As Draft Express also notes, PJ’s catch and shoot points per possession is 1.383, up from 0.679 last year. That’s in the 94th percentile in the country.

As John Calipari constantly reminds him, when PJ’s dialed in like this, he’s one of the best players in the country. Keep it up.

    But I thought Calipari didn’t develop players – he just rolls the ball out there.

      Yeah he’s just a recruiter and not even good at the anymore, we haven’t gotten any better as the season rolls on. Fire him and let’s get some 4 yr players, this one and done stuff ain’t working. Only thing Cal is good at developing is a bunch of haters.

      IKR! Cal sucks, UK would’ve been better off hiring Greg Marshall 10 years ago, he’d for sure have us to at least one sweet 16 by now, Cal hasn’t done anything g for our program and I’m tired of only getting scrubs like PJ, Herro, Ashton, and Johnson. Those guys suck at basketball and only play for the name on the back of the jersey. Cal pretty much “looses” every game because he only cares about the league. Players first, ahyuck!
