Sharks pair BJ Holmes and Olu Babalola are proving to cool customers from the free throw line this season.

The duo combined well to free Holmes for the winning basket against Newcastle Eagles last week and they’re proving equally adept from the free throw after new statistics were released from the British Basketball League.

Both point guard Holmes and small forward Babalola made more than 90 per cent of their free throws in February from the four matches they played.

Sharks, who take on Worcester Wolves at the EIS tonight (7.30pm) in the BBL Trophy semi-final first leg also had power forward Patrick Horstmann average 10 rebounds per game and guard Nick Lewis stole the ball nearly three times an outing.
