Even though they're called "free" throws, shots from the charity stripe are never a given.
But for Notre Dame's Michaela and Marina Mabrey, free throws come easily. And on Feb. 9, the two sisters hit 21 shots to set a new Guinness World Record for most free throws by a female pair in one minute while using two basketballs.
The idea materialized when athletics communication associate director Chris Masters and few members of the Notre Dame athletics department came to the sisters with the record.
"He asked if we wanted to break this record and obviously we thought, 'Why not?'" Michaela said. "It's a great opportunity and my sister and I decided it was a great idea."
