The Dagger - NCAAB

The worst shot selection a college basketball player has displayed this year occurred not on the court but on the side of a road in the middle of a blizzard in Harrisonburg, Va.

That's where James Madison walk-on guard Ryan Knight was arrested on Saturday evening after allegedly throwing snowballs at a city snowplow and, you guessed it, an unmarked police car.

Knight and fellow James Madison student Charles Gill, both 21, were charged with throwing "missiles" at occupied vehicles, a felony that amazingly could send them both to prison for up to five years. (Even in a world where spork-wielding 6-year-olds can be suspended from school, a tad excessive, no?)

At about 5 p.m. on Saturday, police responded to a report that two men were throwing snow at the windshield of a city plow truck. When police arrived at the scene to search for the assailants, their unmarked squad car was also bombarded with icy projectiles.

Knight, a sophomore, has appeared in just one game this season for James Madison. Tip of the cap to the The Smoking Gun for the mugshot.
