    Cajuns are 9th in the country in made free throws!
    They are getting to the line (and converting!).

    This could be huge in post-season. Always drove me nuts when we missed free throws.

    They seem to be shooting in the 80+% range recently. This is one area of improvement from last year (working from memory, didn't look it up!).

    The next three games are at home. It would be really nice to win these three, remain undefeated in conference and put some pressure on UTA and Georgia State.

    I thought he said they were 74th in the country at 74%...he said it was ironic. Did I miss something?

    Note* - FWIW - NCAA lists the team as Louisiana!

    Okay, did the research. Last year we shot about 67% at the free throw line for the year.
    We are shooting about 70% so far this year.

    He may have said that. NCAA has Louisiana ranked 77th in FT% at 74%. (15 games)
    I got the 70% from the Louisiana website. (Maybe the difference is the exhibition game.)

    Double-checked. Louisiana stats are only from the first 8 games (as of Dec. 1).
    So, they are shooting free throws better as of late.
    Hey Matt, how about a stats update?!
    Go Cajuns!

    Thanks for the update. I couldn't make sense of it.

    Awesome numbers all the way around...Didn't want to come across negatively. I don't see how the guys don't move on if they continue to play smart and keep shooting free throws like that. I still don't like the 3 point shots they take some times, but Coach Marling seems to be trying to correct that. Love to see them playing well.

    App. State is the next Sun Belt team ranked in the top 50.
    They are ranked 48th at 82 points per game.
    Should be a good one.
