Mississippi State head coach Rick Ray and his coaching staff took full advantage of school being out for the past month.
They doubled up on practices and had two-a-days.
The practices paid off, especially with the shooting, for the Bulldogs. The biggest jump that was seen was MSUâ€™s free-throw percentage.
In the last four games, the Bulldogs made 64-of-90 (71 percent) free throws.
â€śAs a team, our free throw percentage has jumped 8 percent in these past four games,â€ť Ray said on Mondayâ€™s Southeastern Conference teleconference. â€śWhatâ€™s helped that is when weâ€™re out of session here at school, we bring our guys back for a second practice and that second practice just consists of shooting shots and a lot of free throws. Those guys are shooting at least 150 free throws a day.â€ť
