Well, a recent women’s game involving Georgia College and Columbus State produced a similarly infamous attempt from the charity stripe — courtesy of GC guard Shanteona Keys.
Keys explained to Deadspin that she brings the ball close to her face and sometimes her finger touches her nose. “On that shot, I just followed through too close to my face,”
she said. “And my fingernail got caught on my nose, so I couldn’t
follow through correctly on the shot.”
It’s a technique that’s certainly worked in the past for Keys — she’s a career 78.4 percent free-throw shooter, who averages 16 points per game — just not this time.
