Oregon State’s Joe Burton has a lot of confidence in his back-to-the-basket game. So much so that he can keep his back to the basket even when he goes up to shoot.
During Thursday’s home loss to Stanford, Burton received a pass just outside the 3-second lane. After positioning himself with one dribble, he flicked a shot over his head — without turning to face the hoop — and sank the shot.
Burton must have watched his share of those “bouquet pass” videos that went viral throughout the high school football world last fall and thought, “Hey, I can do that.”
Good luck to Pac-12 opponents trying to defend this shot.
