Wisconsin player tries new Strategy from Free Throw line

Published on February 27, 2013 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

Wisconsin’s Ryan Evans has been horrible shooting free throws this college basketball season. Entering the game with Nebraska he was shooting 40 % from the line. He had made just 51 of 126 attempts at the charity strike. So it was time for Evans to try something else.

Considering it was bottom feeder Nebraska Evans could afford to try a new strategy at the line. So he decided to shot a jump shot from the free throw line. This strategy worked for Evans who went 2 for 2 from the line in the Badgers 77-46 rout of the Cornhuskers. Whens the last time you saw someone do this probably when you were watching elementary basketball.

Evans talked after the game.

Well it worked tonight, so I’m going to keep it going. “I think it might have been the first time all season I went 100 percent from the free-throw line, so that’s an accomplishment.”

“It’s kind of experimenting a little bit. “It’ll be a game-time decision. I’m in the business of winning. So I’m just trying to do what I can to regain that confidence at the line.”

You have to wonder what happen to Evans last season he shot over 70 % from the line. Now you have to think he will keep his new strategy as long as he keeps on making them.
