Bowling Green State University professor Jim Albert examines the streak of 70 straight made free throws by Lauren Prochaska, a women's basketball player at BGSU.


Tonight's Texas Tech at Missouri men's game featured a number of scoring spurts by each team (play-by-play sheet):

Mizzou outscoring Tech 12-2, to go from down 14-13 to up 25-16

Tech outscoring Mizzou 16-2, to go from down 30-22 to up 38-32

Mizzou answering with a 13-1 blitz to go back up, 45-39

Mizzou again outscoring Tech 12-2, to increase its lead from 65-62 to 77-64

Tech going on a 7-0 run, to cut an 87-77 deficit to 87-84

The Red Raiders got no closer, with the Tigers winning 92-84. Mizzou is now a perfect 16-0 at home.

I subscribe to signficance magazine through AMSTAT. That was a great explanation of how odd or lack of oddness the streak was. It seems the basketball player plays well under preasure.
