Patric Young Working To Improve Free Throw Shooting
Patric Young is working to solve his free throw woes.
Young shot just 4-of-8 from the line last weekend against LSU.
“It’s huge because I’m leaving points on the board whenever you miss free throws,” Young said. “You go 4 for 8, that’s four points that help you with your draft stock or your average on the year. I mean, it doesn’t really matter but when it comes down to the line in a game-winning situation, you need to be able to step up with confidence.”
Young took about 500 free throws earlier this week in the practice, and it showed on Thursday against Texas A&M.
Young went 4 for 5 from the line against the Aggies to improve to 52.5 percent for the season.
