In Tech’s two games in the Triangle this year, they’ve shot 17 total free throws (10 vs unc, 7 vs nc state). Their opponents have shot 70 (unc 27, nc state 43). As a result, they’ve been outscored 50-13 from the line in those two games.
There are several ways to interpret that data. One is Tech is not being aggressive enough on offense, the other is the traditional ACC schools are getting the benefit of the calls, or some mix of the two. I’ll let you form your own opinion.
BONUS STAT: HOKIES NO LONGER OWN OT
- Going into their game at duke last season, the Hokies were 11-2 in ACC overtime games.
- Tech is 1-3 since then, with losses at duke, unc, and nc state (and a win over georgia tech).
