Ever hear the expression, ” If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, again?” Well, that’s exactly what Ashlee Arnau, a cheerleader at William Carey University did. She had tried to make an unbelievable soccer style flip throw-in shot from mid court in every home game since Christmas and had failed… until yesterday, Thursday, when she nailed the virtually impossible half-court shot!
Of course being a Forward on her school’s soccer team didn’t hurt…
(Be sure to continue to watch the shot in slow motion)
During the second quarter of a Pennsylvania high school basketball game between Chester High and Imhotep Institute this past weekend, Arizona-bound Rondae Jefferson dribbles the length of the floor weaving through defenders, throws the ball off the glass to himself and slams it. The one-man fast break and self alley-oop finish drew a loud ovation from the crowd and earned Jefferson the No. 2 spot on SportsCenter’s top plays Tuesday morning.
Jefferson, who had campaigned the past two days on Twitter for ESPN to air his dunk, shared his excitement when the network finally showed it.
“Espn y’all,” Jefferson tweeted, “I made it!!!!!!”
VIDEO OF THE WEEK:
Just when you think you’ve seen it all, the weirdest thing happens. It was during Saturday’s ACC Virginia Tech-North Carolina game when #11 Virginia Tech wide receiver Dyrell Roberts found a strange object just near the line of scrimmage. (You’ll see what he found on the video below). An official time-out was immediately called, giving the player the opportunity to carry it off the field. Let’s just say that it was a good thing he did because some player might have gotten ‘cut’ during the game. Suffice it to say, it’s a good thing that the NFL replacement refs weren’t calling this one otherwise there would have been a 25 yard penalty and an automatic 5th down…
