Free throw percentage almost perfectly correlates to conference RPI. All you'd have to do is flip flop the Big 12 and the Big East, and you'd have it exactly. How very interesting.
|Conference||FT %||RPI Rank|
So free throws are a pretty damn good indicator of success, unless you're Memphis in which case you can shoot 58.7% and still be the Jessica Alba of the NCAA.
In conclusion, the fact that the Gophers can't shoot free throws for shit really pisses me off.
