American University center Tony Wroblicky was not a good free throw shooter before this season. Then he started attempting them with one hand and, voila, he’s making 72 percent during his senior year.
The No. 15-seeded Eagles are currently battling No. 2 Wisconsin and, early in the first half, the world got introduced to Wroblicky’s unorthodox — but effective — methods. Steven Goff wrote about the 6-feet-10 Wroblicky’s transformation earlier this month and the Bog also had an item before American beat Boston University for the Patriot League title.
It appears most of Twitter didn’t read those stories.
