In the loss to Penn State, Muscala got off only four shots, something Paulsen said would be addressed. In the two games since he has made 15 of 27 shots (56 percent), but more importantly, the Bison have found ways to get him the ball more consistently, but not force the ball into him.
"There is a fine where we have to play through Mike because it's the right thing to do, but we can't be robotic in that it takes us out of our game trying to get the ball to him," said Paulsen. "Against Kent State we got into a really good flow offensive, a good rhythm and balance and Mike still had 27.
"That's what we need to continue to do."
