WATCH: Ole Miss QB swishes long football pass into basketball net

Ole Miss basketball coach Andy Kennedy may want to give Shea Patterson a call.

The Rebels quarterback displayed his impressive accuracy Tuesday afternoon during Ole Miss' video production day, catching all net on a long football pass (shot?) into a lowered basketball net. Patterson celebrated the achievement alongside his teammate, defensive tackle Benito Jones.

That's 3-point range for Patterson, right there. According to Ole Miss' Twitter account, it came on Patterson's very first attempt too.
