Move over, Steph Curry, we have a new long-range king.

OK, Vanderbilt center Josh Henderson isn’t actually going to supplant the reigning MVP, who fires — and hits — from way behind the 3-point line with regularity.

But he did hit a shot that would make Curry proud Tuesday night vs. the Florida Gators. And while it might have been a lucky shot, you have to give the kid credit for being aware of the clock and launching the shot just ahead of the first-half buzzer.

With the seconds ticking down, Henderson grabbed the ball off a block from a teammate at the Gators’ foul line, then instantly turned and fired a two-handed, chest-high heave the other way.

The buzzer sounded as the shot went in and the Commodores hit the locker room with a 40-35 lead. You can watch it below:

Teammate Matthew Fisher-Davis might have had an even more impressive shot in the second half, forcing one up from deep against tight coverage to bea the shot clock.

The Commodores rode the momentum in the second half, cruising to an 87-74 win.
