A 11 point, 10 rebound average at Seattle Christian failed to bring 6-6 Bryon Jansen any scholarship offers, leading him to consider intramurals at Georgetown rather than a Division III school in Oregon. Two years on the Georgetown practice team followed, and he was called into walk-on status as a junior, appearing in 15 games over two seasons.

"Late in a lopsided win in January over St. John's at Madison Square Garden, Jansen was called off the bench by coach John Thompson III," wrote the Seattle Times in 2008. "During a timeout, teammate Jeremiah Rivers, son of Celtics coach Doc Rivers, choreographed a play. 'Bryon', Rivers said, 'I'm going to get the ball in bounds. I'm going to dribble down the court. You're going to pop off a screen. I'm going to hand you the ball, and you're going to make a three."

"Just as Rivers described it, Jansen came off the screen, took the handoff and banked in a three-pointer. He had scored at Madison Square Garden. He has something in common with Walt Frazier, Willis Reed, Jerry West and just about every great player on the planet."

It turned out to be Jansen's only field goal of the season, and of his college career.
