Free-throw shooting is all about routine, and American University’s Tony Wroblicky has one of the most unique processes in the country. The 6-10 senior catches the ball from the referee with two hands, but then goes through his entire motion – including shooting – with one hand.
According to the Washington Post, this is Wroblicky’s first season shooting like this. New coach Mike Brennan deconstructed the senior’s approach at the line and helped transform a career 55% free-throw shooter into one making 71.4% on the season. At one stretch this year Wroblicky even went 49-60.
It may look weird, but the method works. At the end of the day, it’s all about results. Just ask Rick Barry.
