Once again, we lost a game on the foul line. Brown got 26 points to our 8 from the foul line and 4 to our 2 in the overtime. Friday night, when we lost to Yale by 11 points, they got 23 points to our 11 on foul shots scored
This has been the story all year--poor defensive technique resulting in excessive personal fouls committed. Ugh!

The shame is that we are outplaying these teams in many respects - i.e shooting percentage, assists and even rebounds but are losing because we cannot defend without fouling. We obviously cannot win games if we have a 15 point negative differential on the foul line. The priority the rest of the way should see if this one thing can be corrected, especially for Finley. If all we did in the remaining games was to find a way to keep Finley in the game but out of foul trouble I think we would win many of these close league games.

Here are some interesting numbers:

If you need similar data for free throws attempted per-game, just let me know.

Thanks for the great statistics. Your seasonal graph does not include this year's team totals. I note that you do include Ivy League statistics for this season and in every contest Princeton has committed far more fouls that our opponents and at least 22 fouls in each game. Did Princeton commit this many fouls in non-conference games this year? Can you ask Coach Johnson why, at least in league play, Princeton is committing so many fouls. Has Coach Johnson changed anything on defense that is causing this to happen? What plans does he have to make sure that the trend does not continue, especially for Finley?

Disregard my question about fouls in 2007-08. I found it in another post. Thank you. Why are fouls in the league this year so much greater than the non-conference schedule? It can't be because we are losing and need to foul late because we lost almost all the non-conference games as well.
