Team manager helps Missouri basketball player hone shooting skills

COLUMBIA – Their routine started at the end of last season when Josh Dinkins dared to think he could disrupt Marcus Denmon’s fluid and accurate 3-point stroke.

During shootarounds in practice or before games, Dinkins, a student manager for the Missouri men’s basketball team, started to harass the sharp-shooting Denmon by running at him and sticking his hand in Denmon’s face.

“He kind of just has this thing where he thinks I’m going to miss if he puts his hand up,” said Denmon, a sophomore guard. “It’s usually not the case.”

Clearly, Denmon has full faith in his shot, which he can justify with his 44 percent 3-point success rate – second-best in the Big 12 – and his team-leading 48 3-pointers.

But he wasn’t too stubborn to ignore the potential benefit of Dinkins’ pestering gimmick.
