Free Throw Update

It was great to see us close out Villanova last night at the line. After an unfortunately, far too frequent, dismal 7 for 15 through the first 28 minutes, we finished making a whopping 17 of our last 19 (89.5%) in the final 12 minutes. That was 70.6% for the game. The second game in a row that we have exceeded 70% and the third game of our last four to do that. And that is the first time all season that we have had a string of four games with three of them above 70%.

Speaking of that, I noticed that since Christmas we are 4-5. In those four wins we shot 73.6% and were over 70% in every game. Conversely, in the five losses we shot 60%, with no games above 66.7% and three games under 60%. Not saying that the poor free throw shooting cost us the game (although it didn't help), but more like playing poorly overall spills over to our performance at the line too. Maybe a lack of focus or something, I don't know. Just thought it was interesting.

Additionally, last night we were 100% on our one and one chances making both the front and back end. In games where we have had more than one opportunity, we have only done that only one other time, about 20 games ago vs Lamar.

This puts us at 56.9% on our front end of the one and one opportunities for the year (33 of 58). Individual stats, listed in order of most attempts are as follows:

Dieng - 6 of 12 (50%)

CSmith - 8 of 11 (72.7%)

Siva - 7 of 9 (77.8%)

Russ - 4 of 8 (50%)

Chane - 3 of 5 (60%)

Buckles - 1 of 4 (25%)

Kuric - 3 of 3 (100%)

Price - 0 of 3 (0%)

Justice - 1 of 1 (100%)

Swop - 0 of 1 (0%)

SVT - 0 of 1 (0%)

Team totals 33 of 58 (56.9%)

Loving this trend guys. Keep up the good work and Go Cards.
