Devin Foster Breaks Out, Makes Absurd Shot

The bus was burning bright and loud in the basketball team’s loss to Michigan State last night, but at least one player reminded us that the future is promising.

Meet Devin Foster, a junior JUCO transfer out of Vincennes University in Indiana. Thanks to the suspension of John Johnson and incessant team foul trouble, the 6-foot-2 guard notched a handful of season highs: minutes (22), points (six), rebounds (five), and ridiculous shots (one), which I’ll soon get to.

Foster’s 22 minutes were as much as guard Geno Thorpe and swingman Payton Banks combined. He flashed speed and strong handling, but none of that was more impressive than this shot, which I’ve watched 10 times and am still confused as to how it went in.

There a few impossible things about that shot, such as the way he was facing when he released it and how high it hit on the backboard. It was probably the best moment in the brutal-as-usual loss.

Foster played in 37 games at Vincennes, averaging 12.2 points a game while shooting 50 percent from the floor. Though Penn State’s NCAA Tournament hopes are looking bleak at 12-7, it’s nice to know the loss of Johnson isn’t hurting too badly.
