Doug McDermott Hits Game-Winner From 25 Feet Out

Doug McDermott, Creighton's do-it-all forward, dropped 39 points on 15-26 shooting against St. John's last night, and none were sweeter than his last three.

What I love about this shot is that it looks like it was meant to be taken from such preposterous range. McDermott sets up from 25 feet out like he's waiting for a corner three, and then he casts off with the hesitation of someone about to take wide-open elbow jumpers.


Of course, this is exactly the kind of shot one would expect Creighton, with its mad-scientist dedication to the three-ball, to win a game on. Somebody should have probably told St. John's about that.
