Video: Louisville’s Jaylen Johnson Takes Arguably Worst Free Throw Attempt Of All-Time

Louisville knocked off Virginia Tech last night, 91-83, and thankfully for the Cardinals, they didn’t need the below free throw attempt from sophomore forward Jaylen Johnson to go to emerge victorious.

VIDEO: Duke’s Grayson Allen Dunks Emphatically Over Virginia Tech Player

In true Blue Devils fashion, Duke has been completely dominating their opponent on Saturday’s match up.

They ended the first half leading 50-23. Honestly, it just seems a bit unfair. One of the many...
