Amateur player attempts 124 three-pointers in a single game
17 Jan 2011, 10:09 PM

Lithuanians proved that amateur basketball can be just as exciting as the professional sport in somewhat bizarre circumstances. Rolandas Dovydaitis put on a real show for the small number of spectators, who gathered to watch an amateur league game in Kaunas, setting the country’s world record for most three-point shots attempted in a single game.

The record was broken by a country mile as the player jacked up an astonishing 124 attempts from beyond the three-point line, making 24 of the shots. Even such a circus couldn’t stop Rolandas Dovydaitis and his team from winning as they still triumphed 103-70 in the end.

“Last game our opponents let us shoot wide-open three-pointers. We gave it a little thought and wondered why a single player couldn’t do all of that alone. If our opponents allow me to shoot more than 70 three-pointers, I should be in the record books after the end of the game,” Dovydaitis said just before the tip-off of the game.

At first, the gag wasn’t going all that well, as Dovydaitis missed his first 19 shots, but the Lithuanian managed to get back on track and even had a run of eight consecutive shots made from beyond the arc at one point in the game. What’s even more remarkable, his teammates amassed a total of 108 rebounds, a key factor to the player’s success.

Despite collecting a total of 73 points, Dovydaitis managed to get a total efficiency ranking of minus-30, mostly due to a hundred missed three-pointers.

“My goal was to score twenty out of a hundred, but what’s most important is that I broke the record,” said the new record holder, who has set a mark, which will be hard to beat.

Losing the game wasn't important... I see...

Winning or losing is not what's important, it's how many times you shoot the three...

That. Is. Insane.

24-124. That's 19%. And we thought Posey and Dunleavy were bad.

What worries me now is that we know Pacers people read the Digest. Did we just give them an idea? Is this guy gonna be working out for the Pacers next week now?

His GOAL was to make 20% of his shots?

Actually, it says his team won the game, 103-70. He outscored the other team by himself while shooting only 19% from three. Apparently quantity really is better than quality... JOB is clearly onto something.

I call BS. No way you can jack up 124 shots in a game. Unless it went into 10 OT's
