From Halfcourt, From His Knees, With The Shot Clock Running Out: 'Really?'

Based solely on probability, it was only a matter of time before someone hit this exact shot. I mean, it took Kevin Love 98 attempts to hit a 90-footer, but eventually he did it. So, yeah: you’d have to think that over a century of hoops, someone could come through.

Last night, Isaiah Canaan from Murray State finally made it happen. Halfcourt, on his ass, time (well, shot clock) running out. Awesome:

Is it better than the Minnesota kid that hit a three from his back? Tough call. But you know what? Keep playing basketball, random colleges of America. Statistically speaking, the more the merrier. Because ridiculous shots? We like ’em!
