    Basic Question

    How come girls playing HS BB are better FT shooters than men playing DI BB?

    Physics. Same size rim. Smaller ball.

    Did you see the 1A champ game, they didnt miss many. Have you saw the ISU men shoot FTs this year?

    Funny. Exira is the only team in the state in Class 1A outshooting the ISU men. What was your point again?

    Exira: 66.2%
    Iowa State men: 65.5%

    There are 17 girls teams in this state shooting better than our men. So less than 10% of the girls teams in this state are shooting better than our men.

    They didnt miss many tonight. I guess I didnt look up the stats for every team.

    Re: Basic Question

    They use a smaller ball, just like billpickles said.

    That makes zero sense.

    I'm sure it makes sense to you.

    There's a reason that lots of teams practice FTs with extra large balls, or with hoop inserts to make the hoop smaller.

    Re: Basic Question

    I'm going to go with anatomy and go with the idea that larger hands and being taller might not help.
    I'm also going to go with the idea that an xbox, pool table, and couches at the practice facility might not help.

    Some one is going to be a smart*** and quote me and say fixed so I'll just do it myself (also some one is going to be a smart*** and say: that's what she said)
