I have to wonder if you were watching the game if you think that
Glen missed alot of easy shots.
In fact, whenever Duke let up slightly (like a switch that left someone
like Capel on Big Dog) Robinson usually drained the shot. He had
very few uncontested shots throughout the entire game.
Also, if you have had a hard time getting in to your rhythm then it
is often harder to hit these shots the few times that they appear
since you have not gotten many open shots. Thus, when a player misses
a few of these shots in a situation like this it is often due to the
defense that has been played as opposed to it just being an off night.
