My assumption is that he is going to get every opportunity to play the point, considering Iowa has Jordan Bohannon and then... ? I would imagine McCaffery and Christian Williams battle for the back up point guard spot this offseason and into next. However, McCaffery is versatile enough (as is Williams) that he should also see playing time at the two when Fran doesn't want to take Bohannon off the court. 

McCaffery is a wild card next year. If he is good from day one there is the opportunity for playing time at the back up point guard spot and he could take some shooting guard minutes if Williams and Ellingson don't take much of a step forward next year.

Maybe Baer was, but Iowa didn't really shoot all that poorly. They were actually above their conference play season average in eFG%. Moss' shots seemed ill-timed and I remember him hesitating on at least whether or not to take one of his three-pointers, which could have thrown him off. And with the way Jok has been shooting since mid-January, I don't think we can blame the arena on his woeful shooting from outside.

Mostly, it was just Iowa's shooting from up close that was bad in this game, and that was because Bryant and Morgan blocked eight shots.
