Basketball purists say that they don’t like to see games decided on free throws.  But on Tuesday, the First Round game of the Atlantic 10 Basketball Tournament between Charlotte and Richmond was clinched by Charlotte with an astounding 11 free throws in the final 4.7 seconds. Here’s how it played out: With 4.7 seconds remaining and Richmond leading by three, Richmond fouled Charlotte guard Pierria Henry with the intention of not giving Charlotte a look at a game-tying three-pointer.  On the ensuing one-and-one free throw shot (which Henry made), Richmond’s Derrick Williams shoved a Charlotte player, resulting in a flagrant foul and another two free throws and possession of the ball for the 49ers. Henry made the second half of the one-and-one and then made both technical free throws, despite the officials botching the call.  It should have been Williams, who was shoved, not Henry, at the line.  Anyway, Henry’s four makes gave Charlotte a one-point lead, and they kept possession of the ball.  Charlotte inbounded the ball to Henry who was sent to the line for two more free throws.  At this point, Richmond coach Chris Mooney had apparently seen enough.  He flew off the handle and earned two technicals, giving Charlotte four more shots. In the end, Henry took 11 free throws, making eight, leading Charlotte to a 68-63 comeback win for Charlotte. Mularkey. Here’s video courtesy of Business Insider:
