Kentucky's Aaron Harrison made some of the biggest shots of the year in 2013-14. Where will he rank among the top shooters for next season?

It's the most fundamental part of the sport of basketball: shooting. Yet the ability to get the ball in the hoop with high accuracy is not an easy task.

Making more than 50 percent of your shots is considered a really good rate, while hitting better than one-third of attempts from three-point range unofficially qualifies a player as an outside shooting expert. (If only all areas of life allowed for being able to miss about half the time or coming up short on two of every three occasions.)

This past college basketball season gave us a lot of great moments centered on a clutch shot—Kentucky's Aaron Harrison gave us two of them in less than a week, and from virtually the same spot on the court—and featured plenty of great shooters.
