Maryland's Destiny Slocum sinks crazy three-quarter-court buzzer-beater before halftime
WASHINGTON (ABC7) —
Hitting a three-pointer in college basketball is tough.
Hitting a three-pointer at the buzzer is even tougher.
Hitting a three pointer at the buzzer from about 65 feet away? That is so difficult, it would almost have to be...destiny for the shot to go in.
And that is exactly what happened just before halftime of the Maryland Terrapins' Women's Basketball NCAA tournament match up with West Virginia on Sunday. In the closing seconds of the half, Terps guard Destiny Slocum launched the ball down the court from the opposite three-point line and hit nothing but net as time expired to give Maryland a 38 to 24 halftime lead.
Here is the freshman guard's unbelievable shot, with a defender in her face no less!
Here is Slocum's amazing shot from another angle.
The home crowd at Xfinity Center went wild after the shot and Slocum was predictably mobbed by her teammates after her nearly full-court heave.
Slocum is in the midst of an incredibly impressive freshman campaign for the Terrapins and seems to be...ahem...destined for great things at Maryland.
The Terps won the going away, ending the Mountaineers' season with a 83-56 win and Slocum finished the game with 21 points, eight assists and four rebounds.
