it's a game plan that sez.....if up by 6-8 points last minute, and YOUR team is excellant at free throws then keep trading 2 point FT until game ends. IMHO

that would make sense if Rhode Island was terrible at the line but they were really good today.

yes, i had a -10 2nd half Butler play, but they played it correctly to win the game, THEY knew they could trade off everytime those 2 point swings.miss my play by one but like Butler was waiting on them to miss :(

Dean Smith the Past Coach at NCaro use to be down by 10-12 points and start fouling the other team at the 3-4 min mark, I've seen his games last 45 min's longer bc of his way of trying to get back into the game. he was one of the first to use this ploy, and its used in some fashion in every game today
