VIDEO: Nick Richards buckles down on shooting with impressive workout video

Nick Richards is tired of hearing your concerns about next year’s team’s inability to shoot – and he’s here to prove you wrong. The 6-foot-11 center recently tweeted this video, which shows him hitting shots from a variety of spots on the floor, plus some impressive foot work. He captioned the video “becoming a better me.” Take a look for yourself:

Richards isn’t the only 2017-18 player who’s ready to prove doubters wrong. In a recent interview with KSTV, Kevin Knox also addressed next season’s shooting.

“A lot of people say we lack shooting, but I think I can knock shots down, P.J. can knock shots down, Jarred can knock shots down,” Knox said. “I think we’re really pretty solid on shooting.”

Although youth and lack of experience is another key issue facing the freshmen next year, if this team can find a few guys to hit deep shots, I think we’ll be in pretty good shape.

    As Richards is often compared to WCS, skillwise I actually think he is ahead of Willie coming in as a Freshmen. He will be a fan favorite and will get 80% of his points on dunks/oops/putbacks….so effortless for him.

      The question is…can he make free throws?

    He is more advanced than WCS coming in. Has the jump shot and skills but he has to be able to rebound and block shots as well.

    He looks pretty good there. I hope he has better hands and basketball smarts than Bam.
