In the interest of full disclosure, Adam beat me to this, but I put a lot of that on the fact that I was in the hospital visiting my sick father. (See what I did there? I gave Adam credit while putting that sick father thing in there to garner your sympathy) He pointed this out to me in an e-mail this afternoon.
In Memphis’s last game vs. Mississippi State, Memphis was 15-32 from the free throw line for a whopping 46.9%
In their opening round game vs. Texas -Arlington, Memphis was 22-35, for an impressive 62.9%.
Now, I’m now fancy big city lawyer (gasp!) but that seems to add up to 37-67, or 55.2%, which is roughly 14.8% worse than Billy Packer’s shockingly inaccurate prediction that was based on nothing.
When asked how he wrote Billy Packer so well, Melvin Udall said, "I think of a man, and I take away reason and accountability."
