News Flash: Clemson Can’t Make Clutch Free Throws

Although North Carolina trails the ACC in free throw percentage, Clemson has a history for throwing rocks from the charity stripe - especially late in close games.  Their foul shot woes this season prompted head coach Brad Brownell to say:

 “It's been some of the free throw shooting. We've actually lost four games this year where we've had free throws to tie in the last 15 seconds. Haven't been able to convert. Virginia Tech, Boston College, Maryland. Those are three games in the league that we were actually shooting free throws in under 10, 12 seconds. If we tie the game, we make them. We have a non conference game with South Carolina that was the same way….You feel a little snake bit. In all honesty, some of the kids have executed things very well to put ourselves in a position to make a play, but we haven't closed it, we haven't made the shot or made the free throws, so we've let some teams off the hook a little bit.”
