Whose shots are better?

They don’t call it ‘A Player’s Program’ for nothing.

Even being 2,000 miles away in the Windy City, Chicago Bulls rookie Lauri Markkanen is still keeping the Tucson link strong with a friendly trick shot competition against current Arizona freshman Alex Barcello.

It all started with Barcello challenging Markkanen to a game of H.O.R.S.E.

Markkanen then countered with a compilation of trick shots he made during his time in Tucson last year.

And here is Barcello’s response, which to me, seems much harder and much more ridiculous considering this isn’t even a logical shot. Do any of you physics people want to figure out how he did this?

Considering how well Barcello is shooting this season (57 percent from behind the arc), is anyone really shocked that he got this to go in? The former four-star recruit might not have arrived in Arizona with as much fanfare as other freshmen, but the young guard is surely making the most out of his opportunities so far.
