Well, maybe William Byrd didn’t come away with a home-and-home sweep with Roanoke County rival Cave Spring, but thanks to Marvey’o Otey, the shot they all will be talking about was taken by the Terriers.
Otey scored 30 points, but the Knights edged Byrd 76-69.
Now the Harlem Globetrotters have weighed in on Otey’s miraculous behind-the-back 3-pointer.
“We come to Roanoke in February, and we might want to recruit Marvey’o for our Trick Shot Challenge that will be part of every Globetrotters game,” Globetrotters Showman Special K Daley said in an email released by the club. “Marvey’o's shot was crazy enough, but he even added some more Globetrotter-like flair when he ran through the gym doors after flinging the ball behind his back.”
