The free throw percentage in basketball is a statistic that measures a player's or team's success when shooting free throws. To calculate a free throw percentage, you divide made free throws by the free throws attempted. If a player attempted 15 free throws in a game and made 10 this is what his free throw percentage would be 0.66 or 66%.
The free throw percentage is the most basic shooting statistic, and it is the primary way to measure how good of a free throw shooter a player is. The NBA's free throw percentage as a league is 75%, while college basketball's is around 69%
Players can be either good, average, or bad free throw shooters based on their percentage. However, some players' free throw percentages are very high, while others are very low.
