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

+Read full article

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.
