Watch: Maryland freshman Destiny Slocum drains three-quarter heave to beat buzzer

Maryland freshman guard Destiny Slocum has a knack for hitting buzzer-beaters. But not quite like how she drained her latest in Sunday’s second round matchup against West Virginia in the NCAA Women’s Tournament. En route to Maryland’s 83-56 thumping of the Mountaineers, Slocum heaved a shot from three-quarters of the length of the floor, knocking it down to end of the second quarter at the Xfinity Center in College Park.

Slocum was mobbed by her Maryland teammates following her unbelievable shot.

 

Slocum’s volleyball toss was no accident either, as she described to Thomas Kendziora of Testudo Times.

The freshman dominated the flow of the game scoring 21 points, shooting 9-of-14 from the field including 3-of-6 from three, while dishing out eight assists, and recording four rebounds and three steals.
