Maybe a 50-foot game-winner is the shot in the arm that the Drexel Dragons needed.
Bruiser Flint's squad was supposed to be a force in the CAA this season, but after losses to Towson, Northeastern and James Madison, expectations quickly snowballed in the wrong direction.
Well, junior guard Frantz Massenat may have just changed that.
Drexel was locked in a tight battle at Hofstra on Wednesday night. The Pride knocked down a three to tie the game at 52 with just under six seconds left, forcing Flint to call a timeout.
Apparently, this is how things went down in the huddle:
"Alright, inbound the ball to Frantz, who will be running away from our basket in the backcourt. Frantz, you're going to get double-teamed, but this is all you have to do to beat it: Lose your dribble at the half-court line, almost get the ball stolen, regain possession, step through the double-team and drill the 50-footer off one foot. Sound good? Good."
Just how they drew it up.
Massenat came into this one on fire. He had knocked down 12 threes in Drexel's past four games, but he won't hit many more in his collegiate career that are bigger than this one.
Because this one might have saved the season for Drexel.
