Stop Wilson by defending the wing? Does the author know what a wing is?
Wilson is 0-5 this season in 3pt FG attempts. He is shooting .615 for the season in all FG attempts.
I assume most of those attempts are in the paint.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

Douglas Wilson is 64.5% from the free throw line. That is normally as far out as he shoots. He has the most free throw this year on the team. Offensive rebounds and scoring 6 foot hook shots and dunks will be the norm for shot selection. He has some games where he gets early fouls which is the most effective defense against Wilson.

BTW, WIU's Mr. Basketball, the greatest ever IMHO, Joe Dykstra has something in common with Doug Wilson. Who knows what it is?

Just a guess here: Did they both go to Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids ??

Credit the guys for picking up the intensity in the 2nd half. The 64K question is can you play that kind of scrappy defense for 40 minutes.
