SH1/2W: Arinze Onuaku has the shooting touch

When you make mild-mannered Sean McDonough guffaw, you know you've done something special.

Now, I know what you're thinking: 1) Come on, that was one free throw. 2) Arinze Onuaku would beat the hell out of you if he caught you laughing at his free-throw foibles.

To the second point, well, of course. If I didn't hide behind a tough-guy internet persona, I wouldn't be a blogger.

But to the first point, keep in mind that Onuaku is shooting 33.3% from the line this season. And it's not even like he's only gotten to the line 3 or 6 times.

He's 30 for 90.

And I'm just saying, J.J. Redick didn't miss free throws like that.

Also making this video awesome: This video was taken from Syracuse's 2008 NIT loss to UMass (which is why you all were confused by the scoreboard having a "1" next to Syracuse's name. Don't freak out, we're not in a parallel universe or anything.)

You remember last year's Syracuse team, don't you? The team that went 9-9 in the Big East, but somehow 1-3 against the Atlantic 10? How exactly do you go 0-2 against a UMass team (both at home!) that hasn't been relevant since John Calipari was getting them put on probation?
