Stanford's Free Throw Shooting Through the Years

Stanford's FT% By Season (Since 1950)

The Stanford men's basketball team's free throw shooting over the last three seasons leaves something to be desired, and that's putting it mildly. Barring an absurd 50-for-50 streak between now and the end of the season, the Cardinal will shoot less than 68% for a third consecutive year. Stanford hasn't, um, accomplished that since 1978.

Here's some good/interesting news for anyone who has found Stanford's free throw follies as maddening as I have. First, it could be worse. Two teams in the Pac-12 are shooting at a lower clip from the free throw line than Stanford, including USC, which is at a woeful 61%. The other team is first-place Washington, which shoots only 62% from the FT line, but averages more FT attempts per game than all but three teams in the league.

What does it all mean? I don't know. Just beat Cal (which happens to be the best free throw shooting team in the Pac-12).
