James Fraschilla, a walk-on freshman, created a video that shows him hitting a dozen trick shots, including remarkable shots from the balcony, a golf cart and a treadmill.
Fraschilla and OU graduate manager Teddy Owens spent three hours over two days filming a dozen trick shots, most filmed in OU's practice gym.
They swear there wasn't any creative editing.
“They look really hard, so when somebody asked me I thought I'd better ask them,” said OU coach Lon Kruger. “They assured me it was (legit).”
In the YouTube video, Fraschilla dedicates a between-the-legs, center-snap, half-court shot to Bob Stoops.
Fraschilla concludes the 1-minute, 51-second video by encouraging viewers to supporting Hayden's Hope, a pediatric organ donation program (haydenshope.org).
Short-handed Cincinnati playing well
OU's game Thursday night at Cincinnati is the Sooners' only true nonconference road game. Three Bearcats are serving six-game suspensions following a brawl with rival Xavier earlier this month.
The only key Cincinnati player serving a major suspension is 6-foot-9 power forward Yancey Gates, the Bearcats second leading scorer (13.5) and leading rebounder (9.5).
Switching to an open-post offense fueled by an aggressive defense, the Bearcats (9-3) have played better in the four games Gates has missed after throwing a punch in the melee. Cincinnati has averaged 99.0 points the past three games.
