Yale basketball's Brandon Sherrod hasn't missed a shot in three weeks

  Yale's Brandon Sherrod has made 25 consecutive shots from the field.

The phrase ‘hot streak’ doesn’t do this justice.

Yale’s Brandon Sherrod has made 25 field goals in a row, placing him just one shot behind James Thompson of Eastern Michigan and Torian Oglesby of Bowling Green's NCAA single-season records of 26 makes in a row.

To put in perspective how incredible this streak is: Sherrod hasn’t missed a field goal attempt since Jan. 16. That’s right; it’s been more than three weeks since one of his shots didn’t go through the nylon.

Sherrod began his streak toward the end of Yale’s Jan. 16 game against Brown. He then followed that up with three perfect shooting games from the field, going 9-of-9 against Brown on Jan. 22, 7-of-7 against Penn on Jan. 29 and 8-of-8 against Princeton the following day.

At 6-6, 240 pounds, Sherrod does much of his damage right under the basket and isn't much of a shooter. He's only attempted one 3-pointer during his three-year college career, and he's only gone 14-of-26 from the free-throw line during his past three games. But his dominance at the rim has him on the verge of making history.

Sherrod will have a chance to make that history on Friday night against Columbia.
