Pinson throws down monster jam vs. FSU

Thanks to a foot injury he sustained before the season began, UNC guard Theo Pinson didn't make his season debut until Jan. 8 against NC State.

The Tar Heels demolished the Wolfpack 107-56 that night, but Pinson didn't hit a single field goal in the game. Pinson again failed to knock down a bucket in UNC's next game against Wake Forest, so the junior swingman entered Saturday's matchup against No. 9 Florida State with zero field goals to his name this season.

Then this happened:

Well then.

That's one way to score your first basket of the year.

Pinson finished the game with 12 points, 10 rebounds and three assists as the No. 11 Tar Heels ended FSU's 12-game winning streak, 96-83.
