It's the same issue we seem to always have with basketball: can't shoot

if we are shooting consistently at 35% or worse, you are going to lose every game. Same thing from 3pt range, if we are 25% or worse, which we always seem to be, not going to happen. You have to be close to 43% or higher from the floor and close to 30% from 3pt range. Sadly, this poor shooting has been the story for years here.

Coppin St shot 51% from the field and 35% from 3 point. The also shot 82% from the line.

ECU shot 38% from the field; 23% from 3pt and a terrible 61% from the foul line. (being that terrible from the foul line is inexcusable).

If ECU hit the normal/average percentages I posted above, they win by 4 points. I never mentioned foul shooting, which any team should be at least 75%, so if they improved that, they would win by 8. Even with Coppin shooting lights out, they still would win if they hit just average shooting percentages.
