There is actually one aspect of FT defense that is controllable by the defense-that is who gets fouled and shoots the FTs.If you keep fouling the best FT shooters on a team the odds are they will make a higher % as a team. But even that isn't always the case.
I watched the game last night, and I am pretty sure we will lose unless we shoot a very high percentage. Iowa has an inside game and they are well coached. Plus, nobody on our team is from Iowa (except Bubu) and therefore Iowa will have somewhat of an emotional edge.
Before the season started I think most everyone here thought this would be an ugly loss. Then, we saw what South Dakato State and Long Beach State did and.....whoa, looks like a win. Now that they beat UNI....oh no! Well, they may have uglied UNI......but they aren't better than California. Keep the bigs out of foul trouble.......JVB gets his touch back.......we will be fine.
