WASHINGTON — Seth Allen was a guard for the Maryland Terrapins for the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons. He then transferred to Virginia Tech and sat out the 2014-15 season, then he resumed his play for the Hokies.
Now in his senior season and averaging 11.4 points on a career-best .564 shooting while putting up a career-high 3.4 assists per game, Allen is having a fine season for the 14-4 Hokies.
On Wednesday, he scored 17 points on 6-for-9 shooting while playing 29 minutes off the bench against Georgia Tech. He also canned the game-winning layup, capping a very strong evening for the Woodbridge, Va. native.
But no game-winning shot is going to top the unusual maneuver he pulled off early in the second half. Just watch this thing.
What? How? Huh?
Seriously, how do you even think about trying that? At what point do you commit to it? What if you miss? That could have been such a disaster, but instead it was among the coolest things to happen in 2017 sports so far.
