Oklahoma’s James Fraschilla basketball trick shot video benefits ESPN broadcaster’s charity

No matter how many times you've seen them floating around the internet or popping up on social media, basketball trick shot videos are very cool.  They're made cooler when they go to benefit a good cause.  That's what Oklahoma junior James Fraschilla has done with his latest trick shot video.

Of course, you may recognize the last name and the inherent connection to ESPN with James' dad working at the network as a college basketball analyst for the last several years.  Jay Bilas guest stars at the beginning of the video, featuring one of his growing number of catchphrases – "real recognize real."  Fraschilla also encourages donation to the charity of fellow ESPNer Dari Nowkhah, Hayden's Hope.  Nowkhah lost his infant son in 2011 due to a virus that attacked his heart and the charity in his name raises awareness for pediatric organ donation.

Encouraging philanthropy with amazing trick shots – this is how you win the internet.
