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.

Ole Miss hopes this accuracy translates to the gridiron, as Patterson prepares for his first full season as starting quarterback. Patterson replaced an injured Chad Kelly for the final three games last season and threw for six touchdowns and 880 yards.
