Watch: Duquesne's Mike Lewis II makes crazy shot before half

Duquesne freshman Mike Lewis II had a great game against Massachusetts on Wednesday, picking up a career-best 31 points.

Five of those points came within a couple seconds of each other at the end of the first half, including three on one of the more wild shots to drop this season.

With about seven seconds left, Lewis drove to the elbow and put up a nice shot off the glass. He then ran back, stole the ball, and in pretty much one motion lobbed a one-handed shot — if you want to call it that — from near midcourt while fading away. The result? More generosity from the backboard and three more points for the Dukes.

Lewis finished the game 8-of-14 from the floor, including a stellar 6-of-7 from deep, and 9-of-10 at the charity stripe in a 96-66 victory.
