Two things. Continue to play defense, and learn how to make those darned free throws. When the Badgers get fouled in crunch time, it's like a turn over, not a gift opportunity to score with the clock stopped.

Yes, if only that would happen. When have you ever been confident Bucky would put a game away making free throws.

It's been a few years now. What seems different now is that Gard doesn't have big guys who can make free throws. To get the top five players out there now, it would be 4 guards and Aleem Ford.

It just seems odd how bad Bucky consistently is at shooting free throws.

Look at Happ, for all of his skills, he can't shoot free throws. He can't shoot 3s.
He's not Shaq. Who's going to take a chance on him at the next level?
