College basketball, ladies and gentlemen:

We thought we had an open and shut case last December when Appalachian State junior center Brian Okam launched a free throw approximately 100 feet high and four feet out. Then this happened.

Best we can tell, a Georgia College Bobcat shot a free throw approximately four feet high and four feet out, en route to a 70-60 loss to the Columbus State Lady Cougars in a Division II women's matchup in the Peach Belt conference this past Saturday.

Where's Rick Barry when you need him? Maybe it's time to bring back the potty shot.

The Ap State one is pretty close.  It's amazing what can happen when people get nervous.

Perhaps she should've tried this preparation method...it worked for Jackie Moon.

Wow... and this is coming from someone who has literally fallen over while making a free throw.

The best part about it is that it was vs. Columbus State. #gocougars

Maybe next time she will do her research before she decides to spend her summer at the Amir Williams Skills Academy

she was just intimidated by the juggernaut that is columbus state athletics

Or maybe she was intimidated by the crazy, screaming fans.
Or not.

What's interesting is that none of her teammates seem to react much. It's almost like they've seen it before.
