Izzo’s Secret to Free Throws

In 1972, Tom Izzo missed a free throw that cost his high school team a championship. Haunted by the loss, he embraced a daily routine of shooting one hundred free throws, which he does to this day. When TDH Creative captured the story for a Big Ten Network tv spot, they got the inside scoop.

Between takes a TDH employee asked Izzo his secret. Was it eyeing the front of the rim? Keeping your middle finger centered on the ball valve? Follow through?  ”No,” Coach Izzo instructed. “Just shoot the fuckin’ things.”
