Basketball: Concordia guard's circus shot gets American airplay

There is no late hockey on Thursday night, so if you're up at midnight, flick over to Rogers Sportsnet East.

A circus shot that Concordia point guard Damian Buckley made last year in a game against the Virginia Cavaliers will appear on an episode of The Best Damn Sports Show entitled "Random Acts of Awesome." It airs at midnight (all times ET) on Thursday on the 'Net East. It will be repeated Saturday at 1:30 a.m. on Sportsnet Ontario and at 2:30 a.m. on Sportsnet East.

Here's the shot, for those who haven't seen. Buckley had the ball knocked away at the top of the key by a Virginia player. He dove to recover the ball while well out from the basket, fired it toward the basket while still down and swished it:

The kicker is that even diehard CIS devotees might not have seen Buckley's shot (the guy writing the post very much included). It is far and away the most viewed clip at the ConUStingers YouTube channel, though.
