Killeen among top free-throw shooters in NCAA history

Washington & Jefferson College senior point guard Kennan Killeen, pictured, the 2010 Presidents’ Athletic Conference Women’s Basketball Player of the Year, finished her career as the ninth-best free-throw shooter in NCAA Division III history.

Killeen, who scored 1,189 career points, made 85.6 percent (339-of-396) of her free throws during four seasons with the Presidents.

Anderson (Ind.) College's Angel Hall, a 2004 graduate, is the top free-throw shooter in NCAA Division III history at 89.5 percent (323-of-361).

Killeen likely could help many Division I men's teams with their free-throw shooting. For example, DePaul. The Blue Demons, who were eliminated from the Big East tournament earlier today, ranked 347th out of 347 Division I teams in free-throw shooting at 58.5 percent. The Blue Demons have three players shooting less than 50 percent from the line.
