Villanova's Kris Jenkins drains 40-footer to beat the shot clock

That's Steph range.

CBS

Villanova forward Kris Jenkins is a pretty good shooter. He came into Thursday night's game against Miami making 37.4 percent of his threes on the year, and hoop-math.com suggests he's the Wildcats' best shooter on two-point jumpers, too, hitting just under 50 percent of those.

Even good shooters shouldn't make 40-footers from Stephen Curry range look as effortless as Jenkins did on one possession against Miami in the Sweet Sixteen, though.

It was just another trey in a first half in Louisville that saw the Wildcats and Hurricanes combine to go an impressive 13-for-19 from distance.
