On the subject of quicker/rushed shots...

One thing I wish VT would have done differently is to square up and take jumpers when available, as opposed to ball faking and driving right into the teeth of Memphis' defense. Aluma in particular had several good looks at 3's, but passed them up, drove the lane, and either got rejected or turned it over. Cattoor and Mutts both did this as well. Seemed to me that we got baited into playing their game (driving and attacking the rim) rather than our usual game (ball movement to create an open shot). Maybe the plan was to get Memphis in foul trouble? But considering they go 10 deep, and their whole roster seems to be 6'6" plus, not sure that is a wise strategy.
