Murray State newcomer’s three-quarters court shot wins campers ice cream


Leroy ‘Shaq’ Buchanan shot 32 percent from three last season at Northeast Mississippi Junior College this past season.

That didn’t matter as the Murray State newcomer stepped to the opposite free throw line with a camp full of children needing him to hit a low-percentage shot in order to win free ice cream.

Buchanan, a 6-foot-3 junior, averaged 18.4 points, 7.0 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game for the Tigers. He’s expected to be a scoring option for the Racers, in addition to being a versatile defender.
