Mark Fox, the top tweeter in the SEC according to one Website’s ranking, sent out the word via Twitter late Saturday morning:
“So game day trick shot by our walk-ons hit a new high today –- Coach Richt the star of the show!!”
Fox, Georgia’s basketball coach, linked to video of Mark Richt, Georgia’s football coach, banking a one-handed behind-the-back shot through the net in Stegeman Coliseum.
“One-for-one,” Richt said as he triumphantly left the court.
Here’s the video of Richt’s improbable shot on YouTube. Enjoy.
UPDATE: By late Sunday night, Richt’s shot had been viewed more than 14,000 times on YouTube.
If you follow Fox on Twitter, you know that trick shots are quite popular among Georgia’s walk-ons.
By the way, Fox tweeted Friday night that Saturday’s 5 p.m. game against No. 8 Tennessee at Stegeman Coliseum was sold out except for the final student tickets that were available starting at mid-afternoon.
UPDATE: As you know, Georgia upset the Vols on Saturday in sold-out Stegeman. On Sunday, Fox tweeted: “Great win — thanks to all of you who came and helped us. Go Dawgs!”
