    I understand that a coach doesn't want to hammer on something too much, which can make players tight. That said, the best coaches attack problems head on and have a way of emphasizing something in a way that's productive. I don't know how you overcome this problem without making it an A-priority point of emphasis.

    High priority or low priority, I'd like to know what the coaching staff is doing to fix this. Are they just pointing to the gym and telling the players to shoot a bunch of free throws until they're better? There are ways to coach this type of thing up, but that's not it.
    I think his point was that the failure at the free throw line affected their defense. Defending well, then penetrating and getting to the line and coming up empty handed again and having to go back and defend well again...he saw the deflation of the defense as the bigger issue.
    They're both pretty big issues.
    I see your concern and share it.

    Well, if you can't score and you can't stop your opponent from scoring, then you have a recipe for losing.

    I think the Goph's also started 4/5, so they were 5 out of last 18. Under 30%. Remarkably bad.

    I think some of their players shoot their FTs too quickly without taking a moment to dial in the concentration. I am hoping Pitino IS NOT ignoring this situation and trying to instill a deep breath--anything--to give the players some sort of psychological boost.

    The missed FTs didn't just hold our score down, they negatively impacted the psyche of the team during game action.

    Was looking at the Big Ten Stats to see where we rank. Currently we are 11th at .659 wit Iowa leading the way at .760.

    What I found interesting though is that we are second in the conference in the number of made free throws and second in the conference in the number of attempts. So we are getting to the line at a really good rate we just are not converting enough.

    Attempts:
    IA - 463 through 16 games
    MN - 411 through 15 games
    MSU - 354 through 16 games

    Makes:
    IA - 352
    MN - 271
    MSU - 256

    It is similar to a turn over.
