Expect the Soquel High girls basketball team to test the waters on McKinleyville’s free-throw shooting tonight when the two teams meet in the NorCal quarterfinals.
McKinleyville picked up a 55-43 victory against Colfax on Wednesday night to open the NorCal playoffs, despite shooting 9 of 26 from the FT line.
Is it a trend or an abberration?
On the season, the Panthers are 302 for 550, or 55 percent, according to stats published on maxpreps.com.
By comparison, Soquel is 223 of 352, or 63 percent.
If the game is close, this will be the difference.
