    Many of the students probably went home for the long weekend, but that was a terrible turnout.

    My main problem with the last sequence is we didnít waste enough time with the two fouls to give. We immediately fouled when they inbound the ball instead of letting them run and then foul or wait until they tried to pass. Also, you still have to play defense.

    At the beginning of the second half. There were a few nonstudents sitting in this section. The wife and I had a great time despite the outcome. We had pretty good seats behind the UNT team.

    Exactly! Horrible misuse of the advantage of having two fouls to give. After the second foul they should have been out near midcourt with less than a second on the clock. Then you over play the front court forcing them to inbound into the backcourt. Game over. Konkel is clueless.

    Not to mention the missed FTs that would have sealed it anyway.

    That was the point I was trying to make and in my frustration typed timeout rather than fouls to give. It was worse than you remember. Since AA missed the free throw, the clock was running and we had a trap on the rebound.... and immediately fouled. There is absolutely NO WAY UNT should have been able to get off an 8 foot floater in that situation.

    Somebody in charge needs to tell our band to forget that "Hands Up" fiasco during free throws, it leads to nothing but dead silence in the arena (except for the clang off the rim when our guys miss). I think it actually hinders our guys from making good free throws.
    Tech's free throw shooting mystifies me. Shooting free throws is all about using your LEGS. So when I see DaQuan Brace --a 43.9% free throw shooter-- stand on the free throw line REPEATEDLY, and never once bend his knees, then I know for a fact that our guys are untrained and haven't worked on their free throw shooting at all.

    Here's the painful part: As the team's primary Point Guard, it's DaQuan Brace's job to handle the ball, and when the opportunity presents itself, to drive the ball deep into the paint, and draw the foul. This means he will typically get to the free throw line more than anyone else on our team. Essentially, it's Brace's JOB to GET TO THE FREE THROW LINE! So, you would think he --and his coach-- would want Brace to be prepared to shoot free throws when he finally gets there? And the fact that he still shoots Free Throws like a 6-yr old is quit disturbing about him and his coach.

    Try to imagine a painter who never learned how to paint. Essentially, that's analogous to where DaQuan Brace is with his job. He's a free throw shooter who never learned how to shoot free throws. SHAME on his coach.

    And to further the point, UNT shot 91% (10 of 11) from the free throw line yesterday, while LA Tech shot 64% (7 of 11). So, LA Tech and UNT shot the EXACT same number of free throws yesterday (11), but Tech only made 7 while UNT made 10. That's 3 extra points UNT got in a game we lost by 1 point. Think about it.

    Great observation. I thought the same. We lost this game between the ears, on a number of issues. Just dumb stuff.

    BTW, Brace shot 7 of our 11 free throws yesterday, further emphasizing my previous point that a team's point guard absolutely MUST be a good and credible free throw shooter, because he's the guy that's going to shoot most of your team's free throws.

    What got me was that we only made 2 of our last 12 shots. Bracey drove the basket several times but was so out of control he was closer to horizontal when he let his shot go and barely reached the goal.

    What's wrong with a driving step back jumper? That's a shot I don't see so much anymore that used to be pretty effective.

    Re: Bulldogs Battle Mean Green in Big Conference Matchup

    It's pretty simple. The data on college basketball tells us that if you can't shoot free throws, you're going to lose. The Best teams not only shoot well at the free throw line, part of their game strategy is to figure out how to get to the free throw line more often than their opposition. I guarantee you LA Tech is not doing that. Our guys are fearful of the free throw line, so there's certainly no reason to believe part of their game strategy is figuring out how to get to the line more often.

    There is no more valuable shot in college basketball than the free-throw attempt.That's the conclusion after we looked at every Division I team’s performance since 2001 (a total of 6,051 individual seasons), and a trend stood out: teams that shot more free throws won more games. Teams could shoot dozens of 3-pointers a game or none with virtually no impact on their win percentage. The same goes for 2-point field goals. But free throws? That’s where we saw the difference.

    They looked at every team's performance since 2001!!???? Then the data is bogus! Means nothing! 100% of the data used in a study skews the reality. You have to ask Vegas how much FT shooting means.

    Much better if they had used no data at all!
