WATCH: Jones hits 3/4-court shot before half

Now that's a way to end a half -- and hit your first career 3-pointer.

With two seconds left in the first half of Saturday's game against Marquette, Butler's Roosevelt Jones took the inbounds pass about even with the top of the key and banked in a three-quarter court heave. The shot tied the game at 37 as the Bulldogs and Golden Eagles to the locker rooms.

Jones isn't known for his long-range shooting abilities -- he had only taken one three-point attempt in his career before that.
