What if we were to focus solely on free-throw shooting? How would the Final Four schools rank in team free-throw shooting percentage?
This is according to the NCAA for the season in games played through March 29, 2018, meaning the absolute up-to-date stats.
Villanova is the best free-throw shooting team left in the tournament at 78%. That’s very, very good.
Who’s next in second? That would be Loyola at 72.2%.
Kansas comes in at 70.5%.
And then Michigan at 66.2% which could be a problem.
If you think this analysis is unimportant or not significant, watch these video clips from the 2008 Memphis/Kansas championship game.
