Belmont came away with an 83-80 win over No. 12 North Carolina on Saturday as part of a wild college basketball weekend that was filled with upsets. The game brought us a very exciting finish, but the highlight came within the first 11 minutes when some dude started belting out a Miley Cyrus song to distract a UNC free throw shooter.
Tar Heels forward James McAdoo strolled to the free throw line with 9:58 remaining in the first half, and per usual the fans in Chapel Hill were silent. But there had to have been at least one Belmont fan in the stands.
“I came in like a wrecking ball!” some guy could be heard screaming. “You never knew how loud I yell!”
And of course, McAdoo missed the free throw. McAdoo was just 11-for-19 from the charity stripe on the day, so it’s not like he’s a fantastic free throw shooter. Still, we’re going to give credit to the Miley guy here. Creativity should always be acknowledged.
H/T For the Win
