James Fraschilla is at it again. The Oklahoma walk-on guard, and son of ESPN college basketball analyst Fran Fraschilla, has made some trick shots before, but this time the junior guard takes the trick-shot game to a new level.

Enter the trick shot while taking a selfie.

With selfies being so popular, it was only a matter of time that someone would attempt to make a trick shot while taking one.

Of course, it was Fraschilla, who has released a YouTube video before of his shot-making talents. The 5-foot-10 junior guard appeared in six games for Oklahoma last season, totaling four points and playing seven total minutes.

What kind of trick shot will Fraschilla do next?

With July featuring three five-day open recruiting periods, many college programs host their annual summer camps during the month of June. Murray State head coach Steve Prohm is hosting a camp this week, and among the activities is the “Ice Cream Shot.” If the shot is made, all of the campers get ice cream and that’s obviously a nice perk for the kids.

Thursday afternoon assistant coach James Kane was entrusted with making the shot, and he came through from some 75 feet away from the basket. Not sure if he called “glass” but from that distance does it really matter? Nice shot, and congrats to the campers who received the reward of ice cream on a late-spring day.

UCLA’s Bryce Alford shows off trick shot skills (VIDEO)

In his first season at UCLA, point guard Bryce Alford put together a solid freshman campaign on a team that reached the Sweet 16. One of the first reserves off the bench, Alford played just over 23 minutes per game and posted averages of 8.0 points and 2.8 assists per contest.

However with four starters and fellow reserve Zach LaVine all having moved on, Alford will be asked to do even more in 2014-15. With those personnel losses in mind the time that he and his teammates (which includes a very good recruiting haul led by forward Kevon Looney) spend in the gym this summer will be important, but that doesn’t mean it has to be all “business” in the gym. Alford attempted a couple trick shots at Pauley Pavilion, with the footage posted on YouTube by the UCLA athletic department.

The first shot is one that just about any person who’s picked up a basketball has attempted (and many have made). But the second shot Alford made in the video above? Impressive. And the lack of a boisterous reaction to the second shot, a length of the court shot that was kicked in, is pretty cool too.
