in both the Ohio State and Ole Miss games yesterday with the score tied and 20 odd seconds remaining they just let the oppossing team dribble the clock out and take the last shot....why not foul and force the issue. Even if the other team hits both free throws, your team gets the last shot with a chance to tie or win the game..the way they played it the best outcome they could hope for was overtime and both cases it was a worst case ending..At least by fouling early they put their fate in their own hands...anybody else's thoughts on this?
Percentages say that would be a bad option...you play defense and hope for a turnover or OT. NEVER give the other team points. If you foul and they convert FT's then you hope to score to go to OT.
You don't want to give them the lead. Then you are a missed shot from losing.
guess that's why i'm watching from the couch in jamas rather than from the bench in an Armani lol
As a coach I have had a hard time asking my team to foul with a 3 point LEAD in the final seconds to give free throws much less tied....
You grad, bro?
I would offer that if the right person had the ball a foul would be the way to go. Many college kids, and pros for that matter, can be counted on to miss FTs. Of course the smart teams kepp the balls in the hands of guys that can convert.
