Oklahoma Sooners star Buddy Hield has been dominating college basketball this season, especially throughout the 2016 NCAA tournament.

He can credit the success he has had this season to the work he put in on his game growing up, no matter what equipment he did or didn't have. Even if it meant using a makeshift basketball hoop.

On Tuesday, ESPN's Jeff Goodman tweeted out a photo of one of Hield's homemade hoops in Freeport, Bahamas. It's not anything you will ever see being used in an NBA game, but hey, it was enough to help him develop into a good shooter—and a unanimous Associated Press All-American.
