Kentucky's Crazy Behind-the-Back Basket Is Not What You Think

Kentucky's James Young recently made one of the most unbelievable shots we've ever seen. There's just one problem. The ball went in the wrong basket.

Draining an acrobatic, behind-the-back, no-look 3-pointer is awesome, right? In most cases, yes, but not if you score the 3 for your opponent.

That's exactly what Kentucky's James Young did Monday night in a win over Montevallo. After his teammate blocked a shot, Young attempted to save the ball from going out of bounds with a valiant effort. Unfortunately for Young and the Wildcats, the attempted save sailed high and long, directly into the wrong hoop. Three points for Montevallo.

Regardless, Young's unlikely shot received a standing O and is definitely highlight-worthy. Enjoy the reel.
