Wyoming’s Riley Grabau Finishes Season as Nation’s Best Free Throw Shooter
Riley Grabau doesn't grab most of the headlines. He doesn't lead his team in scoring like Larry Nance, Jr. He doesn't make the highlight reels with spectacular slam dunks like Josh Adams. But when he goes to the foul line, the Cowboys senior guard is the best free throw shooter in the entire country.
Grabau finished the regular season with a .951 free throw percentage, over three percent higher than his closest competitor. What's more, Grabau will also go down as one of the most accurate free throw shooters of all time. Only four players in NCAA history have ever posted a higher free throw shooting percentage than Grabau did this year.
Grabau set the University of Wyoming single season mark for highest free throw percentage last season, when he shot 89 percent from the charity stripe before breaking his own record this year. Grabau also ranks among the most prolific three point shooters in school history.
