Entering Saturday, Butler senior Roosevelt Jones had, somewhat famously, never made a college three-pointer.

Despite being a wing player and a four-year regular (and one of those guys who seems to have played in college forever), the forward was 0-3 in his career behind the arc, having not even attempted a shot from long range since the 2012-2013 season.

That changed Saturday, in dramatic fashion.

Not only did that shot come at the buzzer and about 70 feet from the basket, it tied the score heading into halftime in a game Butler really needed to win. (Postscript: The Bulldogs fell to Marquette, 75-69. Butler is now 3-6 in the Big East Conference, but most of those six losses have come to high-quality teams.)

Naturally, Jones had to throw in a dab to top off the accomplishment.

Jones was averaging a career-high 14.5 points per game heading into Saturday’s clash against Marquette. This is the third straight season the 6-foot-4 forward has averaged double figures, after putting up 7.8 points per contest as a freshman.

Entering the game, Jones had attempted 1,148 career two-pointers and only three three-pointers. He had made 529 two-pointers and zero three-pointers. (It’s unclear why the commentator in the above clip calls Saturday’s heave Jones’ second three; it was definitely his first).

He certainly made his first one count.
