NEWS OF THE WEIRD

Bad Nail Day

Posted

College basketball player Shanteona Keys makes free throws at a 78 percent rate for her career, but on Feb. 16, she weakly shanked a 15-foot shot, causing it to thud to the floor about eight feet short of the rim — the worst collegiate free-throw attempt of all time, according to several sports commentators who saw the video. Keys explained to Deadspin.com that she always brings the ball close to her face when she shoots, “and my fingernail got caught on my nose, so I couldn’t follow through correctly.” Her Georgia College (Milledgeville, Ga.) team lost to rival Columbus State, 70-60.
