Five Questions with Matt McMahon 12/14/20


Question: SIU made 9-of-19 shots from 3-point range. How were they able to be so effective against your defense?

Matt McMahon: They really spread the floor in the first half with their five perimeter shooters. They put us in some situations where we had poor perimeter closeouts. And they did a good job of taking advantage of that. In the second half, we did a much better job defensively. But the 3 from the corner in transition, late in the game, was a huge play.
