James Young Scores On Own Basket: Wildcats Freshman Sinks Wild Shot On Wrong Hoop (VIDEO)

Kentucky freshman James Young somehow, accidentally scored on his own basket on Monday when he tried to save a loose ball as the Wildcats faced Division II Montevallo in an exhibition match. After throwing it behind his back and leaping into the first row of seats, Young watched the ball sail through the wrong hoop.

Although Young was behind the three-point arc, NCAA rules say when a player accidentally scores on his own basket, it counts as two points regardless of his location on the court.
