Definition of a circus shot:
When a player goes into acrobatic contortions to get the basketball to go in the basket, we commonly use the term “circus shot” to describe the feat. And that term came about probably because, as Merriam-Webster defines circus, it’s a “large arena enclosed by tiers of seats on three or all four sides and used especially for sports or spectacles (as athletic contests, exhibitions of horsemanship, or in ancient times chariot racing); a public spectacle; something suggestive of a circus (as in frenzied activity, sensationalism, theatricality, or razzle-dazzle).”

1. How Good is UCLA?
First, let me begin by saying UCLA will be mentioned a few times in this article. That’s why I chose Lonzo Ball for the article’s image and he is very deserving of the honor. So far this season the Bruins have been setting college basketball on fire with their nine-game winning streak and electric highlights from their freshman point guard, Lonzo Ball. Lonzo was one of the top high school players in the nation and now he is making a name for himself in the college hoops scene. Lonzo is currently averaging 14.6 points per game to go along with 4.9 rebounds per game and 9.6 assists per game. UCLA is 9-0, and after defeating number 1 ranked Kentucky on Saturday, they look to be an unstoppable force heading into the mist of the season. Time will only tell if UCLA can keep up this fantastic brand of basketball.
