    Free Throws.


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    Re: Free Throws

    I'd feel a lot better about it if Royce would at least hit some iron. Happened against Texas too. He does that on the road and he's never gonna hear the end of it.

    I hope he doesn't make not top 10.

    He needs to bend his knees, and get up on his toes. He shoots so flat footed. And he never does the same routine at the line. Sometimes he dribbles, sometimes he just catches and shoots. He needs to develop a routine.

    I am sure Fed is working on it, but man, this is killing the team.

    Maybe we should start taking free throws at the top of the arc.

    Re: Free Throws

    I just don't understand how we could be so bad at them!
    Our lack of free throw shooting will cost us 5 games this season.

    Let's not pretend it is a teamwide problem. Allen missed some uncharacteristically but it is basically Royce who struggles. It's too bad.

    Re: Free Throws

    Royce must just completely lose all concentration or something? There's NO way you can airball a FT unless you just aren't focused on the task at hand at all. I don't care how bad your form is, you just have to completely be thinking about something else to not at least draw iron.

    As someone else mentioned... he needs to develop a routine he can use every single time... and then he needs to bend his knees and end up on his toes. His stroke seems just fine to me.... it's all in his legs IMO.... and the fact he's daydreaming instead of concentrating on the rim.

    Re: Free Throws

    We had a one point lead coming out of the half, and I believe we could have increased it to a 5 point lead right off the bat, but went 0 for 4 from the FT line to start the 2nd half, correct? How big was that! Could have been huge.
