The theme, IMO, was versatility. DM realized how important versatility is, and did something about it.
DM brought in guys who can do multiple things. Camacho is a PG, but can play off the ball and shoot. Hugley is a big, but a very good shooter. Hicks same thing. Kohl is going to be a matchup problem, whether he's at the 3 or the 4.With offensive firepower and versatility as the two major things the Blue Devils lacked last season, Marshall sure did his best to address them. CCSU finished 335th nationally in offensive efficiency, scoring just 92.9 points per 100 possessions, while struggling to impose their will around the paint as evident by a 44.6% two-point field goal percentage.
I do not believe a basketball team in 2017 can be successful with fewer than three perimeter shooters on the floor at one time. Three pointers are more efficient, and provide spacing for drives to the hoop/points in the paint.
[Edit: in the conclusion, he meant 4 NON-CONFERENCE wins, not 4 overall.]
