Roosevelt Jones celebrates his first career 3-pointer with a dab

BY foxsports • January 30, 2016

Butler senior wing Roosevelt Jones had yet to attempt a 3-pointer this season. In fact, he hadn't shot from beyond the arc since returning from a wrist injury that sidelined him for the entire 2013-14 season.

But just before half in Saturday's matchup at Marquette, the 6-foot-4 Jones heaved a three-quarters court shot that banked in off the glass. That milestone shot tied the game entering halftime.

How did Jones celebrate? By dabbing, of course.

Jones last 3-point attempt was on Jan. 23, 2012 against La Salle. Butler was still a member of the Atlantic 10 at that point. 

Jones scored 15 first half points in addition to his three assists and four steals.

The Butler senior wasn't the only player to hit a three-quarters court shot. UMass forward Antwan Space connected on one of his own at the buzzer to tie the score with Fordham heading into halftime.
