Laureus World Sports Awards, Best Sporting Moment September nominees: Asher Lucas nets three shots

On 8 January, the University of North Carolina was enjoying NC State. The Lucas family have affirmed Carolina for so long as they can remember. “That game had actually been postponed because of snow and the cold weather,” explained Adam Lucas, father of Asher. Due to the delay, there was no halftime display on this afternoon, so Asher and his friend Grant determined that they’d entertain the crowd by trying a few half-court shots.

Asher hit the first shot…

After the initial one, they are like, ‘Hey, you made a half-court shot. Good project,” Asher said.

I’m like, this is nuts, so there’s no way I could make three,” Asher recalled. But let us try it since the audience’s excited. You do not only want to stop there.”

The crowd went nuts when I produced three,” Asher said. “It felt fantastic since I do not really know anybody that produced three half-court shots before, and it is really tough to perform.”
