Division III player savors 90-foot shot
ASHLAND, Va. -- With 0.6 second left in overtime, Jordan Snipes of Division III Guilford College rebounded the other team's missed free throw, turned and heaved the ball the length of the court.
For Snipes, the 90-foot shot for the 91-89 victory over Randolph-Macon on Monday is a memory the former high school quarterback doesn't expect to top.
"I think that'll be my highlight," the sophomore said Tuesday.
The shot capped a career-best 34-point night for Snipes
Tom Palombo, coach of Greensboro, N.C.-based Guilford, said he was walking toward Randolph-Macon coach Mike Rhoades to shake hands when he saw the ball.
"I remember thinking it looked like it had a chance, and when it went through, it was just crazy," he said.
