Entering tonight’s game, De’Aaron Fox had not missed from the free throw line, knocking down his first 21 free throw attempts of the season. That all changed against Duquesne.
Fox missed not one, not two, but three free throws, finishing 5-for-8 from the charity stripe. John Calipari knows a quick fix for Fox.
“I told him, go back to the other hairdo,” Calipari said. “I don’t know what you did. Go back to the other.”
Fox led the team in scoring (16) and assists (6). He was second in rebounding, one behind Bam Adebayo with seven, yet Calipari said after the game, “I thought he was just okay.” Normally Fox knocks down pull-up 15-footers, but “he’s missing them lately.”
If this is just “okay,” we’re in for a treat when Fox puts it all together.
