Have you seen the Ryan Evans free throw attempt? Now Wisconsin Badgers forward Ryan Evans is known for something other than having the dumbest haircut in all of college basketball (it’s a high top that belongs in a “Kid n Play” movie, and should stay there) Behold the jump shot of the Ryan Evans free throw. Evan has been awful from the charity stripe lately all season. He went 16 for his last 38 from heading into last night’s game versus the lowly Nebraska Cornhuskers
The Badgers senior tried a new and unique way of foul shooting, and it paid off as he went 2-2 FT. Maybe the Ryan Evans free throw will catch on? Or maybe another Big Ten player will try a granny shot free throw? I didn’t even know it was legal to jump shoot a free throw, I thought rules mandated you keep your feet planted. But then again I’m not that smart. Evans finished with 14 points and seven boards as Wisconsin thrashed the Big Ten doormat Huskers.
