Oklahoma State's Marcus Smart is one of the best players in college basketball and likely a future lottery pick, but even the best falter sometimes.

Smart went to the line 20 times and made 16 free throws against the Texas Longhorns, but one of his four misses was a doozy. After air-balling a shot pretty badly, Smart took a long walk behind the line to let off a little of his frustration. 

The shot was Smart's only real blunder in the game, as the Cowboys won 87-74 behind his 24 points, 11 rebounds, five assists and six steals.

Hat tip to Scott Gleeson of USA Today's FTW for the find.
