Purdue Guards DJ Byrd, Dru Anthrop, And Former Guard Ryne Smith Make Trick Shot Video

By Riley Schmitt


DJ Byrd, Ryne Smith, and Dru Anthrop are your typical college basketball players (except for Smith, who is now a grad assistant).  The three players at Purdue University were bored one weekend and decided to film a trick shot video to break up the monotony.  This video is pretty sweet.

Nothing like breaking up the boring months of summer with a trick shot competition.  DJ Byrd will be a big part of the team this coming season, while Anthrop is expected to provide a steady presence for the incoming freshmen to lean on.  Smith finished up his career last year and is now looking at a year of helping the team as a graduate assistant.

I hope that these guys make more videos.  DJ Byrd and Smith have gone back and forth all offseason with individual videos, so this is a great thing to see all the shots in one spot.  It takes a lot of talent to be able to pull off a video like this.

I expect big things out of DJ Byrd in his final season at Purdue.  He had a breakout season last year and he can only improve.  He spent some of the offseason getting shooting lessons from Rick Mount, which is never a bad thing.  Hopefully those lessons can translate into the season.  Purdue might be hard pressed to return to the NCAA Tournament, so they are going to need a great year out of Byrd and company.
