Derrick Gordon currently leads the nation in free throws made and is second in free throw attempts. Dan Malone of MassLive recently sat down and talked with him about his success in getting to the line and his success rate once there.


Freshman guard C.J. Anderson talked with Dan Malone about his first career basket that came on a 3-pointer against Florida State Sunday afternoon at the Mohegan Sun Arena.


Maroon Musket: Derrick Gordon Showing Improvement at the Line

Derrick Gordon is leading the country in free throws made (37) and is second in free throws attempted (44), while ranking 172nd with an 84.1 percentage. Although that is a misleading stat because the minimum to qualify for the rankings is 2.5 makes per game. Either way, anyone who has watched DG shoot free throws last year and this year will tell you that his stroke and results are night-and-day from each other.

Nick Canelas of MaroonMusket.com has an article on DG at the line and how much effort he has put in to that part of his game since last season.
