This past week has been full of some pretty spectacular buzzer-beaters. Basketball fans have been treated to watching both the Memphis Grizzlies’ Vince Carter and North Carolina’s Brice Johnson drain nearly full-court shots as game time expired. Well, technically Johnson’s didn’t count, but it was still pretty impressive.
Now, a new player has joined the last-second long-distance basket club: Vanderbilt’s Josh Henderson. During the Commodores’ Tuesday night matchup against the Florida Gators, Henderson snagged a rebound from a blocked shot and launched an 80-foot attempt without even jumping. The shot swished through the hoop just as the buzzer sounded, giving Vanderbilt a five-point lead at halftime.
This feat becomes even more impressive when you consider that the senior center has only attempted two 3-pointers during his entire college career, according to USA Today. Vanderbilt went on to win the game 87-74.
