VCU Rams1

Former Ram Jamal Shuler, a fan-favorite for VCU from 2004-08 has carved out a nice professional career for himself overseas, with stops in France, Germany and Ukraine. This weekend, he picked up some nice hardware when his current team, Nanterre of France’s ProA league, won the EuroChallenge (it’s complicated, but it’s essentially the No. 3 championship tournament in Europe) on this crazy buzzer-beater. Shuler is No. 1 in green in this video.

That replay is a little inconclusive, but this angle appears a little more definitive.

To boot, Shuler was named MVP of the EuroChallenge Final Four after he averaged 14.0 points and 4.5 assists. Nanterre wins a promotion to the EuroCup next year.

An All-CAA First Team selection in 2008, Jamal Shuler scored 1,011 points as a Ram and ranks 11th in school history with 170 three-pointers.

Crazy as that was, it’s still not the nuttiest buzzer-beater Shuler’s been party to during his European career. Check out the absurd winner Shuler hit in 2011 with Vichy.
