This student left his team mates stunned after pulling off an insane half-court trick shot on the very first attempt.

Eduard Cernic, 20, from Rome, was messing around after a match when he thought he would try something a bit special.

 Eduard, who plays for Virtus Monterotondo, looks as surprised as anyone as he performs a 360 degrees spin and passes the ball between his legs before throwing it through the hoop with ease – all in a matter of seconds. 

He said: “I play basketball almost every day, I love it so much, it is my life. 

“I always mess around before and after sessions trying different trick shots but they are not as filmed.

“I am so glad that this one was filmed. It is definitely my best one.

 “It was my first attempt. One shot, one kill. That’s why everyone was screaming.”
