Exciting new free throw stats ~

Some interesting free throw stats. Many of us feel like we are shooting free throws much better this year. Here are the facts. We are shooting a little better 69% vs 66.3% last year, but 69% still leaves some room for improvement.
Individually we have 4 players that have taken 65.5% of all free throws this year. Two of them (Siva and C Smith) are shooting very well (about 85%). The other two (Dieng and Behanan) and not shooting so well (both shooting 60.7%). I think it feels like we are shooting better this year because even the guys who are doingly poorly are doing better than last year. All of these returning players are shooting 7-18% better than last year.

In addition to the stats above, I have been tracking our performance in the 1 and 1 situation. To date we are only making 57% of our front end 1 and 1 opportunities. That can stand some improvement. Dieng, Price, R Smith and Behanan are all at 50% or less and Dieng gets to the line more than anyone and makes just 44%. The rule change that allows 2 shots for all fouls over 9 makes this a little less important than previously but we still are missing some opportunities here. Notice that we are shooting 88% on the back end. Maybe we can shoot those first?

Kudos to Siva and C Smith for their huge improvement. That can make a big difference down the stretch, especially for Siva as he has the ball in his hands a lot in the clutch. Go Cards.
