How did Javin DeLaurier make this shot?

Duke, the No. 2 seed in the East Region, breezed past No. 15 Troy, 87-65, on Friday night in the first round from Greenville, South Carolina.

How do you know everything was coming up Duke? Freshman forward Javin DeLaurier, who hadn’t appeared in the previous 15 games and had scored since December 10, lost the handle on a fastbreak, yet still got it to fall through the net.

Some sites had Duke as a 20-point favorite. This broken play turned bucket may have won some people a few bucks.
