Mike Rhoades may have finished his playing career in 1995, but the VCU men’s basketball coach still has some impressive range.
The Wizards invited Rhoades to take a half-court shot at halftime of their game against the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night. When handed the microphone, he had one word for the crowd: “Buckets.”
Rhoades hit the shot with ease and the fans at Capital One Arena went nuts. The head coach was in attendance to watch his former player Bones Hyland, a rookie on the Nuggets.
While Hyland finished the game with 17 points, six rebounds and five assists, it was Rhoades who arguably provided the biggest highlight by a Ram on Wednesday night.
