Hamilton Grad Among Nation's Best Free Throw Shooters

Kam Cerroni holds the UW-Green Bay record for most consecutive made free throws, and has only one miss all season.

Hamilton High School graduate Kam Cerroni might be the best college basketball free throw shooter in the nation.

You won’t find the UW-Green Bay junior’s name among the NCAA Division I rankings, because he doesn’t have enough made shots to qualify. But at 32-for-33 this season, he’s at 97.0 percent, which would be No. 1 in the country. A player needs 2.5 makes per game to be on the list.

The only miss this season was against Illinois-Chicago on Jan. 12, and it broke his school-record streak of 40 consecutive made free throws.

In his career, Cerroni is 70 of 79 (.886) at the line. That would be best all-time at UW-GB but he needs 100 total makes to qualify, and has another season and a half to get there.

Cerroni averages 6.5 points for the Phoenix (10-9), who have won four consecutive games. Their next contest is Wednesday at Valparaiso.
