Indeed, Henderson was a 40-percent shooter from 3-point range and Harris connected on 35.2 percent last season. They combined to take 43 percent of the team's 3s last year and shot a collective 37.3 percent, while everyone else shot 27.3 percent on the other 57 percent of the 3s.
One of Huggins' objectives in rebuilding his roster was to add other scorers around those two. He's tried to do so with junior college players and freshmen, virtually all of them frontcourt players who can step out and shoot. The other two holdover guards, Juwan Staten and Gary Browne, have seemingly improved through offseason work.
"Our best shooter to this point has been Gary Browne,'' Huggins said without qualification. "He's there early and gets a bunch of shots up and I don't think he's ever not stayed after and got shots up. He's been our most consistent shooter.''
That's odd, of course, because last season Browne was just awful, shooting 20.4 percent on 3s. And he doesn't have the classic shot, especially like that of Henderson.
"When Terry shoots it, you think it's going in, and it's kind of that way with Eron,'' Huggins said. "With Gary, sometimes I'm like, 'Ah.' And then it goes in. He's put a lot of time in.''
Huggins, though, said that while Dibo was unlikely to play in the exhibition game, he should be ready four nights later for Mount St. Marys.
"It was supposed to be 21/2 weeks and it's been a week and a half,'' Huggins said. "I wouldn't think he'd play the exhibition game, but I would think he'd be ready to go by the first game. Obviously I'm not a doctor or a trainer, but if it was me I would be ready for the first game.''
