Jonny David’s half-court shot attempts became a staple for last season’s pre-game ritual. The Kentucky Basketball Twitter account would often post a video of the team’s senior nailing a successful mid-court shot, and the BBN began to see the ritual as a good-luck charm before games.
Well, Jonny David earned his diploma today, but not before he sank just one more shot.
Headed down to Rupp Arena right now for Graduation. It’s only right I hit one more half court shot before I go!?? ??? pic.twitter.com/ejz6Z9Tojz

After he made the shot, David made his way back into Rupp Arena – this time, to walk across the stage and receive his diploma. The former Cat also had to clean out his locker from inside the Joe Craft Center. I can’t lie – this is pretty sad.

Happy Graduation, Jonny! The BBN will miss your half-court shots, your All-Access videos and the hilarious ways you interacted with fans. May your announcement video live in infamy.
Thank you BBN!!??? pic.twitter.com/3ivOYqeo6y
