Relive Feemster's famous 3-ball
Freshman's trifecta sparks fan frenzy
Watch the thrilling shot at the buzzer on video
WAXAHACHIE, Texas -- The men’s basketball team at Southwestern Assemblies of God University has gotten off to their best start in over 10 years, though they will tell you there’s still plenty of room for progress.
This week they begin their 24-game schedule against teams in the Red River Athletic Conference. At stake is a berth in the RRAC’s post-season tournament, which is hosted by SAGU. The top eight teams qualify for the three-day, single-elimination event held over the first weekend in March.
The top two teams have a chance to play in the NAIA’s 32-team national tourney, something the Lions have only done once. In 2006, under head coach Jerry Boone, they stunned the #1 seed, Texas Wesleyan University, to earn a bid to the event.
SAGU travels to Muskogee, Oklahoma for a 7:30pm clash against Bacone College on Saturday, December 3. They return to the Sheaffer Center to face the University of the Southwest next Monday, Dec. 5, also at 7:30pm. It will be their final home tilt before the holidays.
Last week they routed Arlington Baptist College, 89-57, and gave the home fans a pre-Thanksgiving feast of fowl. By making 13 three-pointers, Buffalo Wild Wings gave every fan in attendance a coupon for six free hot wings (with any purchase). The team needed a 3-ball at the buzzer by Caleb Feemster to reach the lucky ’13.’
With four seconds remaining, Tyler Guidry was at the foul line for the Lions. He made the first of two shots, and then missed the second. Adam Martinez grabbed the loose ball and tossed it to Feemster. He nailed the twenty-foot jumper as the clock hit zeroes.
Seconds later, chased and mobbed by the SAGU faithful, the 6’5 freshman could’ve run for mayor.
