If you’re still up and watching the 24-Hour Hoops Marathon, you can officially call yourself a fanatic.

During Saint Mary’s 85-63 win over Akron on Tuesday morning, the game became  free throw fest as Akron got to the line 29 times while Saint Mary’s shot 36 free throws.

The Gaels won so easily because they were 32-for-36 from the free throw line while also limiting their turnovers to 10 and shooting intelligently from the distance to finish 5-for-12 for the contest. Because Saint Mary’s shot so many free throws their field goal percentage finished at 54 percent for the game.

Although Saint Mary’s lost Matthew Dellavedova, if they play as balanced and as efficient as they did on offense Tuesday morning they’ll have a chance in the WCC.
