This team is seriously lacking the mentality needed to win. We are completely unfocused in the first 5 minutes of games. Whatever we are doing pre-game in terms of warmup needs to change. When that ball tips, be ready to play. Period. BTW, which assistant coach is responsible for warm-ups?
The bigger threat is our foul shooting. We're now shooting .705% for the season from the line. Last year the Buckeyes shot .689% from the line, ranked 209th in Division 1. In 2011, we also shot .689% from the line, which ranked 146th in the country for that year. The best teams shoot .78 to .80%.
Whatever approach our coaches are taking to free throws isn't working. We are literally losing games at the line. Coach Matta, please don't settle for this.
