Here are GU's post-JH, non-DRav free throw shooting numbers:

64-111, for a monster clip of 58%!

During that same span, DRav is 39-40, for a 98% clip.

This ugly trend must change tonight. Last night all Zags not named Raivio were 14-28 from the line. Yup, you guessed it: that's 50%! The only saving grace about that stat is that, along with DRav's 8 attempts, the team went to the line 36 times (compared to USD's 29).

Within those ugly total free throw numbers since that Friday night in Cheney, the team (excluding DRav who was 12-12) was a paltry 10-24 against SCU in Spokane. That was in a 9 point loss.

In addition to BZ's observations on Pargo, this must be the second most important item that has to be fixed tonight.

Just curious - how different is that from pre-JHgate?

Got no idea. Are you trying to get me to crunch more numbers to interfere with my padding time?

My guess is it is pretty significant. Just prior to JHgate, GU was second or so in the nation as a team from the line. That was with DRav's 96%, but probably not more than 1/6 of the teams attempts. My guess would be that the team other than DRav was around 74-75% pre-JHgate.

Feel free to add up the numbers if you wish.


:D

It seemed to be contagious last night at the free throw line. USD rarely missed and other than Derek it seemed we were missing constantly.

By my calculations ( ... using espn and Uber's stats)

Season Team ... 539 FTM / 714 FTA = 75.5%

Season Raivio ... 136 FTM / 142 FTA = 95.8%

Season (Team - Raivio) ... 403 FTM / 572 FTA = 70.5%

Team (Post JHg - Raivio) ... 64 FTM / 111 FTA = 57.7%

Season (Team Pre JHg - Raivio) = 339 FTM / 461 FTM = 73.5%

Free throws. Free throws. Free throws. We need to sink 'em. Plain and simple.

Lothar: You see that? Wow, that's pretty scary. I guess I'm better than I thought I was! (No, not really :roll:)


BTW, GO ZAGS!!!
