I hate it when this happens to me, but at least I'm not alone. Shanteona Keys, a guard on Georgia College's women's basketball team, was fouled during a game against Columbus State last weekend.
Normally, this isn't a problem. Keys is an 81.5% free-throw shooter for the season, so it looked like two easy points at the foul line.
But then something unexpected happened. Keys' first attempt landed about 12 feet short of the rim. It's hard to miss a free throw that badly, so what exactly happened?
