Butler senior guard Roosevelt Jones is one of the Big East’s finest players, but he’s never been known for his shooting stroke. In fact, the 6-foot-4 Jones had only attempted three shots from 3-point range in his entire college career (missing all of them) until Saturday’s game against Marquette.
It only took 126 games at Butler but Jones finally knocked down his first career 3-pointer on a 70-foot heave to end the first half in Milwaukee.
Butler eventually fell to Marquette in the Big East contest.
Jones wasn’t the only player on Saturday to make a three quarters-court buzzer-beater to end the first half. UMass forward Antwan Space also knocked down a shot from similar distance against Fordham.
