GU needs a free throw coach

It looks to me like it is time for the G.U. athletic director take a good look at the free throw percentage for the Bulldogs. Last game was a dismal 48% !

To put this in perspective, the average high school free throw shooting percentage is 55%-60% . It seems well past due to think about recruiting a free-shooting instructor, perhaps a retired NBA player, in order to get the team up to at least high school levels.

A lot of games are won or lost at the stripe! This will be crucial for the Bulldogs down the stretch in close games against tough teams! These thoughts come from a hard-core Gonzaga supporter since 1954.
