    A win would stretch Louisiana's SBC win streak to nine games, tied for the third-longest in school history and equaling the mark last set from Jan. 14-Feb. 11, 2016.

    They started doing this to adjust for so many teams choosing to shoot 3 pointers over 2 pointers. This is the analytics of why more guys are shooting 3 pointers today vs years ago.

    From the internet search:


    eFG% - Effective Field Goal Percentage; the formula is (FG + 0.5 * 3P) / FGA. This statistic adjusts for the fact that a 3-point field goal is worth one more point than a 2-point field goal. For example, suppose Player A goes 4 for 10 with 2 threes, while Player B goes 5 for 10 with 0 threes.

    From a casual observation 3 point shots seem to actually have better odds than shots inside the 3 point arcs.

    So that is the key and part of the reason, specifically in the NBA people want the 3 point line moved.

    If you hit take 22 of your 3 pointers and make 8 of them that is 24 points with a 36% rate, 2 pointers are shot at around 45%, so you have to almost 10 of those. 10 x 2 = 22 points, while 8 x 3 = 24 points. It makes more sense to shoot a lower % but hit your threes than a higher % of 2 pointers. Also, long rebounds off 3 pointers are easier to get an offensive rebound then a short 2 pointer.

    . . . Probably not as layups and put backs are in 2 point category . . .
