Quest for consistency

Marshall Henderson had been waiting for a game like the one he had Sunday night.

Now he hopes to have that type of game on a more consistent basis. From a percentage standpoint Henderson has had only one bad game this season, that at Kansas State.

He was 2-for-13, but that kind of became his reputation last year, a guy who launched a lot of 3s but didn’t necessarily make a lot of them.

He’s worked to become a more consistent shooter this year, and he talks about that here.

Henderson went into the Kansas State game shooting 40 percent from the arc, an upgrade from the 35 percent he shot last season. The Kansas State game dropped him to 34 percent, and the Oregon game lifted him to 37 percent. He was 10-for-23 from 3 against the Ducks, 43.4 percent. The national average is 35 percent.

Henderson was only 28.6 percent (4-for-14) against Georgia Tech. Aside from Tech and Kansas State he’s been over 30 percent in every game, over 40 percent four times.

The alarming stat for Henderson right now is free throws. He’s money at the line last year and is shooting just 75.9 percent. He shot 88.3 from the free throw line last year. He was 7-for-10 against Oregon.
