Aaron Craft’s lane violation on an intentional missed free throw attempt in the final seconds of Ohio State’s loss to Kansas Saturday brought deja-vu for University of Akron coach Keith Dambrot.
The Zips experienced the same scenario in the championship game loss to Ohio University in the Mid-American Conference Tournament, then again in their next game, a defeat at Northwestern in the National Invitation Tournament.
“We have not practiced the missed free throw very much,” he said. “We absolutely will practice the missed free throw for next year, no question about it. We have to.”
