Basketball experts say that basketball games are won and lost at the foul line. Well, todays UMaine games for the Men and Women help to prove that old basketball axion.
The Women shot a blistering 19 for 20 from the line for 95% in their win over Stonybrook while the Men were a very ice cold Maine weather 8 for 24 for 33% in their loss to Stonybrook.
The foul line is the same distance for the women as it is for the men.
The diameter of the rim is 18 inches and 10 feet high for both Men and Women’s college basketball.
However, the women’s basketball is one half inch smaller in diameter…..maybe that was the difference today.
