Zags have line on success

Good evening. Media day earlier today and I took a deeper look at the correlation between free throws attempted and winning basketball. Gonzaga and other successful teams thrive on their ability to get to the free-throw line. Here's a link to my notebook that will run in Wednesday's S-R.

(UPDATE: The linnk above doesn't contain the graphic that accompanied the article. You can find it below).

Elsewhere, Mark Few and Kyle Stanley have never met, but that didn't keep Few from texting encouragement to Stanley after he blew a three-shot lead at the Farmers Insurance Open on Sunday. More on their connection here.
