Video: Kansas' Brady Morningstar and a free throw for the ages

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


The top-ranked Kansas Jayhawks continued their dominant season with a road laugher over Texas last night, which will allow them to have a hearty laugh the preceding blooper.

Guard Brady Morningstar was at the line, trying to ice the game when he had a bit of trouble hanging on to the ball.

"The ball was wet," Morningstar told the Lawrence Journal-World. "It slipped on the way up. I was so confused. I could have caught it and came down with it, but I'd have stepped on the line. I tried to shoot a little jump shot so I didn't cross the line."

"I looked pretty stupid there," he added. "We laughed about it in the locker room just now."
Yep, quite possibly the ugliest free-throw miss of all time. Even worse considering that Morningstar was selected by Jayhhawks coach Bill Self to shoot for Cole Aldrich, who was disqualified before he could shoot his freebies.
