Besides, a foul to prevent a 3-point shot would have to cause worry about a bad bounce on the missed THIRD free throw.

><snip>a coach's job is also to give his team the best shot of winning, and especially in the college game, that means fouling to prevent a last-second three-point attempt.

>Still, it's amazing how many coaches just won't buy it. Another anti-hacker is Bucknell coach Pat Flannery, whose teams upset Kansas and Arkansas, respectively, in the '05 and '06 tournaments. He trains his defense to trap the good shooters, and doesn't want to risk a bad bounce on the second foul shot . . . .
