    That was RUFF. Maryland played a great game, but itís really disappointing to lose at home and shoot so poorly at the line.

    Forget Hack-a-Happ, I'm worried teams will start playing Hack-a-Gopher.

    This is why the NIT isn't a given.

    One bad half and we’re back into sky is falling mode? Cool. Maryland’s 24-27 from the line was unnaturally good, and our FT shooting isn’t good but won’t be this bad most games. Difficulty scoring against the zone is probably a bigger concern than free throw shooting.

    Badger last Thursday: 7-17 for 41.2%
    Gophers last night: 9-23 for 39.1%

    So, no...I donít think Iíve ever seen a team shoot that poorly from the line.

    I remember a Memphis Tigers team that made a Nat. Champ. run a bunch of years ago that shot horrendously every game from the stripe.

    The team is shooting 65% for the year. That is awful. Last night was worse than awful. It is a running theme of the season so far.

    65% for the year!! ouch! this team has to figure that out. heck even the Badgers game down the stretch they missed 3 straight front ends of a 1 & 1. You cannot do that!

    I was very deflated to hear Pitino's answer to the question about the FT shooting: that he didn't want to emphasize it to the players too much and make it a bigger deal than it needs to be. Then he goes and blames the loss on it. Am I the only one who sees a cognitive dissonance there?

    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.
