You've probably heard announcers joke that opposing defenders should guard Duke's Kyle Singler from the moment he steps over the mid-court stripe because he's such a dangerous perimeter shooter?
Well, now we have proof they're underestimating his range.
Check out the video Duke released a few days ago of Singler hitting an array of trick shots from all over Cameron Indoor Stadium. The senior forward sinks one sitting on the bench, another from a courtside excercise bike, a third from a few rows deep in the stands and a fourth from the rafters of the venerable gym.

It's unlikely that Singler's trick-shot proficiency will ever prove to be useful in a game, but it probably could win the All-American some money in a game of horse. And if he emerges as a successful pro and McDonald's someday reprises its legendary Michael Jordan vs. Larry Bird commercial, Singler might make a worthy co-star.
