34-41 is very nice. Even Karnowski was 4-6 which is stratospheric for him.:clap:

Shem and Pangos were the only ones to miss 2 free throws

I knew that Gary was a good FT shooter, I didn't know he was 87% good.

Pangos 90%
Gary 87%
Sam 86%? * Hat tip to Zagdawg

And stocks and shem are soooo improved. Last year Stocks was a liability on the line, this year, a weapon.

What an unbelievable weapon this is. I am sure that it won us 2 games this week - I wonder how many throughout the season? Anyone want to guess? 6-7?

Sam is 86% also--and went 12-13 tonight --will go up.

What an unbelievable weapon this is.

It's especially an unbelievable weapon when you shoot as many foul shots as the Zags did tonight. Their low FG % tonight is really not a true reflection of how effective their offense was.

Free throw shooting was one of the things I was most pleased about last night. We seem to be much improved overall. I have always had the feeling that a lot of college basketball games have been lost at the free throw line. I would be curious to know that of all of the games we have played in the last four years, how many more games we would have won or lost had we shot a consistent 75% from the free throw line in every game?

Player ... FT% …. My comments

Kevin Pangos…. .895…. great, as expected
Sam Dower ….. .872…. better than expected
Gary Bell, Jr….. .860…. same as Pangos
Przemek Karnowski…. .508…. should be better given his stroke, most attempts by far
David Stockton…. .754…. on the rise, approaching good
Gerard Coleman…. .585…. should be better
Drew Barham…. .500…. only 8 attempts but should be much better
Kyle Dranginis…. .579…. not nearly good enough but only 19 attempts
Angel Nunez…. .800…. great, and 1 more attempt than Dranginis?
Ryan Edwards…. .813…. his FTs look great, 16 attempts
Luke Meikle ….. .000…. n/a
Brian Bhaskar….. .500…. 1/2
Connor Griffin….. .500…. 1/2
Totals….. .718….

2012-13: Zags were 20-29 (69%) in a 6 point loss vs. Wichita St; 11-15 (73%) in a one point loss vs. Butler. In that one point loss to Butler, Butler shot 12-23 (52%) from the charity stripe. One could argue that had Butler made 75% or better, the game wouldn't have been as close as it was. . .

Last year's team shot 68% from the FT line but they were stomping teams from the field so it rarely mattered.

Links to the complete box scores for the 11-12 and 12-13 seasons are posted in the General Basketball Forum thread found HERE (http://guboards.spokesmanreview.com/showthread.php?25728-Basketball-Sites-for-Hoops-Junkies&p=516284#post516284). It may be possible to go back four full years via some of the other stats links. Good luck with the data mining.

Thanks for the info and the link!
