    Much bigger problems than FTs.

    - it seems free throw makes or misses this year is a contagion.
    - if we make our first 5 of 6 the whole team is going to shoot well, but if we start 3 of 7, the whole team is going to shoot poorly that game.
    - thus i think it is all between the players ears, confidence vs. fear of failure.

    - what really hurts is all the front end 1 and 1 misses. i think 5.
    - alabama clearly was the better team, but one wonders could the zags have pulled this out if they were even or a basket behind most of the game instead of down double digits most of the time.

    Well almost. Waiting until the second half to play hard is a problem too

    Two things. For having 21 points or so this was Timme’s worst FT shooting efforts I have seen. Number 2, when we had them on the ropes in foul trouble no one did anything to take advantage of that.

    And even that is a deceiving stat given how many times we missed the first FT of a one and one.

    Unethical, I guess. Mark isn’t the most flexible, on the fly coach, you may have noticed.

    Just looking at stats and I hear yah. I know the low FT shooting won’t cut it and playing against a physical team that is packing it in where you have no outside shooting threat nor a great playmaker can be a very sobering thought. I remember when we had a player like Sacre we used to feed him and he would foul out the other team. This year we dont have those types of bigs. I guess when we had Karnowski we could do the same thing.

    Not really. This stat is made worse by the number of shots we didn’t take while in the bonus. If we had made them pay at the free throw line it would have compounded their foul problems, as it was, the game wasn’t tightened by our made free throws and while they were getting into foul trouble, it didn’t create changes for them on defense. If Gonzaga is going to play soft they need to excel on the free throw line.
