The V Throw Challenge launched on Sunday, March 1, with each ACC basketball coach attempting a V Throw and naming a “Starting Five,” - five others to take their own V Throw Challenge in order to raise money and awareness for the V Foundation.
RailHawks' midfielder Austin da Luz put his own twist on the V Throw, attempting to score "two points" with his left foot from corner kick distance. While Austin may blame "pre-season form" on his miss, I think we need not look too much further than his "backboard."
