James Young: UK freshman lands wild shot in own teams basket

University of Kentucky freshman basketball player James Young made one amazing basket in a preseason exhibition game he will never want to repeat again.

In a heroic attempt to keep a basketball in bounds, Young charged toward the side of the court and blindly threw the ball back in play and directly into the nearest hoop – his own team's hoop to be exact, as reported by Bleacher Report.com.

Young threw up his arms in amazement during the game against the University of Montevallo.
