This isn't directed at you PC...just a comment. People need to remember Gesell was hurt most of his career. He was having a good year for a true freshman and then got hurt at Nebraska...missing the next 4 games. He then played hurt (on 1 good foot) in the NIT.
I believe he broke his hand during PTL play between his freshman and sophomore years. That shut him down and/or limited him the entire off season and appeared to affect his shot as a sophomore.
His junior year he injured his elbow and couldn't shoot from beyond 17 feet.
This year he was healthy all year...as far as I know. But the injuries throughout his career stunted his growth as an offensive player IMO.
Interesting point. I can see how 2 years of injuries could not only prevent you from improving your shot, but could actually make it worse from developing bad tendencies and losing confidence.
