Here's a new feature where I point out interesting stats to keep track of as the season goes on. Today's edition: Ryan Evans's two-point FG% versus his free-throw percentage.
Right now Evans is shooting 42.1% on two-pointers. This is pretty terrible. Only Jackson (39.2%) and Marshall (33.3%) are shooting worse on twos for the Badgers, and their bad percentages are partially explained because they are often called on to shoot crazy runners at the end of the shot clock.
Amazingly, Evans's free-throw percentage is even worse, at 40.1%. It is remarkable for a high-usage player such as Evans to shoot worse at the line than he does on two-pointers.
So the StatWatch™ is: will Evans's FT% catch up and surpass his 2P%? Stay tuned!
