Butler Bulldogs senior Roosevelt Jones entered Saturday's game against the Marquette Golden Eagles 0-of-3 from three-point land in his career, with his last attempt having come during the 2012-13 season.
As unlikely a candidate as he may have been to make a buzzer-beating shot from beyond half court, anything can happen in college basketball.
With Butler trailing 37-34 with two seconds remaining in the first half, Jones caught an inbounds pass deep in the backcourt, took a dribble and let it fly. Fortunately for the Bulldogs forward, the bank was indeed open Saturday.
Not a bad way to get the first three-pointer of your career.
ROOSEVELT JONES! 3/4 COURT HEAVE IS GOOD! @rozayyjones21 with #The1 for @ButlerMBB to end the half! #BIGEAST https://t.co/Z66tl4TLks1/30/2016, 5:53:10 PM
The three-quarters-court triple tied the game at the break.
