Three’s the key?

Somebody asked who is UW’s second-best three-point shooter after Ryan Appleby.
It’s an especially relevant question heading into tonight’s game against WSU. The Cougars at times are susceptible to leaving outside shooters open with their emphasis on doubling the post. Consider that Oregon swept the Cougars this year by making a combined 23 of 50 three-pointers in two games.
The Huskies weren’t quite as successful in their two losses to WSU, going 11-33.
Appleby is by far UW’s most dangerous three-point shooter, making 81 of UW’s 186 treys this season.
Second on the team in terms of makes is Phil Nelson (24) but he has made just 29.3 percent. In terms of percentage, the second-best shooter is Quincy Pondexter (18-47, 38.3 percent).
But the player who could emerge as the complimentary threat to Appleby is Justin Dentmon. He shot just 31.9 percent for the season (23-72) but has been better of late, making 3-4 against Arizona State Wednesday and has made six of his last 12 in the last three games.
