Throwback: Joe Crispin’s jumper was thing of beauty

Joe Crispin and Titus Ivory during the magical run to the Sweet 16 in 2001.

Penn State came up with this good factoid from 22 years ago about one of its all-time greats, Joe Crispin.

Crispin had one of the most beautiful jump shots you’ll ever see. He also never saw a shot he didn’t like and would pull up from anywhere on the court.

He’s the No. 4 all-time scorer in PSU history with 1,986 points from 1997-01.

Crispin played 21 games in the NBA from 2001-02 with the Lakers and Suns, but he had great success overseas. In one game in Italy he shot 10-for-10 from 3-point territory. Here’s the awesome video of it (at 52 seconds in).
