Alex Compton questions ’43 to 22′ free throw disparity in another tough Alaska loss to SMB

Alaska coach Alex Compton wasn’t in much of a mood for talking after his team’s loss to San Miguel on Wednesday.

Instead, the usually affable Compton simply posed a question to those who were seeking a statement from him about the game.

“I’d like to ask you guys, what’re your thoughts on the free throw disparity? What’s your opinion on that? What’s your opinion on 43 to 22?” Compton asked sportswriters.

When some responded that there was indeed a big difference, Compton ended the interview with a phrase: “That’s my statement.”

San Miguel shot 43 times from the charity stripe, converting 29 of them for a 67-percent shooting clip. They had 15 attempts in the fourth quarter alone. –
