    Who believes with 3 months of practice you could make 9/27 free throws?

    ? I know if I could go back to my 19 year old self I could. Just pathetic. I coached a YMCA team of 9 year olds that could.

    That free throw stat sounds like it's from a team of middle school girls . . . or, the Mississippi State men's basketball team.

    Did we have a game last night?

    And we lost by 9? What a cluster!

    I could make over 50% left-handed straight off the couch. Howland's teams poor shooting has grown tiresome. Wonder why he isn't tired of it yet?

    And for those that watched, trust me when I say that it’s not like they were on target and just barely rimming out. The majority were big time careless bricks

    I was just as concerned about the 19 turnovers, most of which were unforced.

    The whole thing was one, sloppy, 17n, shitshow. I especially enjoyed Ado’s brick laying extravaganza.

    It would seem like anyone that had made it to the collegiate level of basketball would be at least competent at shooting free throws.

    Ado’s offense is dunking. Anything else is pitiful. He did try to dunk once and they packed that ball straight out of his hands.

    We are currently in 160th place out of 160 teams that have had a game in FT %. Only around 30 teams out of 160 shot less than 60%. Pathetic coaches.

    The best way I can describe last night is that it seemed as if we took all the TEs and WRs that are getting no playing time from Leach and threw them on a court together. Size, athleticism, and energy were all there. It's the whole skill part that seems to be in short supply. The team looked like a bunch of athletes trying to play an unfamiliar game for 40 minutes

    They had a lot of free time to practice free throws with the way everything has gone since they last played last spring.

    The missed shots under the basket were almost as bad.

    All that pressure of playing in a high school gymnasium got to them.

    I expected that with all the new faces and it being the first game. But I did not expect to see us shoot quite so shitty from the free-throw line.
