Live by the 3, die by the 3 is the hoops clich that seems to get a lot of traction around teams like the UNM Lobos, whose offensive bread and butter is all about hitting shots from beyond the arc. But the Lobos also missed 11 layups or dunks, saw their shots blocked near the rim six times and couldnt draw many fouls when they did try to score around the basket. Unfortunately layups and free throws, Weir said when asked what the message was to his team after the game. So, while the Lobos will never be a national leader under Weir, or even a top-half sort of team in terms of relying on 2-point baskets, they have to be significantly better than they are now.
