    Free Throws!

    Tonight was our best performance at the line since the UNI game (13 games), which we only went 4-5 from the line. Before that our best was against St. Louis when we went 15-19 (78.9%).

    In 21 games it's only the 4th time we've managed to break 70% as a team.

    Nice to see us make some free throws.

    We also doubled-up the Buffaloes 52-26 on the boards.

    Dendy getting to the line only twice really helped.


    Walking on water is easy. Just do it in December when it's frozen.

    I was listening to the radio during his trip to the line. Its telling that Walters and Heft pointed out that on his first free throw (the miss), that at least the ball made it over the front of the rim.

    If he follows through, Dendy makes it. If not, he doesn't. Somehow, he just needs to establish that steady, consistent routine, and he's good to go.

    He needs to shorten up his mechanics. He starts the ball down at his knees, and that makes the motion way longer (and more inconsistent) than it needs to be. Start it up at the shoulder level!

    I'm not even worried about that. It might help. Just watch the follow-through. Every time he does it (almost), he makes it. Every time he doesn't (without exception), he misses.

    I agree with you on virtually every issue facing mankind today, but on Laron Dendy free throw shooting form, we have reached an impasse

    So you are utilizing your constitutional right to be wrong?

    It's long been proven. Nothing tears things apart in life like free-throw shooting. Surely, the government can do something about this.
