FSN has a series called Sport Science. A recent episode featured two former Bruins, Baron Davis (via NBA highlight) and Kevin Love. Davis owns the record for longest (89 feet) basket during a NBA game. Sport Science wanted to see if Love could beat the record (albiet not in a game situation) while explaining the science behind the shot. Here's a video clip of that segment.
Now, the part I don't understand is that I have a clip (below) of Love sinking a fullcourt shot during at a during the 2008 NCAA tournament at the Honda Center in Anaheim. I'm sure many of you have seen it. I've checked and the court dimensions of pro and college basketball courts are the same; the length of the court is 94 feet. It would seem Love already beat the record and by a lot, plus he didn't have as much problem then as during this Sport Science segment. An explanation could be that the Honda Center uses high school basketball court dimensions, making the length of the court 84 feet. That would seem dubious, since we're talking the NCAA tournament. Any one have theories?
In any case, just another excuse to talk about former Bruins!
