The old saying, ‘Like father, like son,’ holds true on the basketball court for the Barry family. Florida guard Canyon Barry is using the free-throw technique made famous by his father Rick in the NBA.
Watch as the senior nails one from the line that his Hall of Fame dad has to be proud of.

Rick Barry hit 90% of his free throws as a pro which was the highest percentage in history when he retired. His son Canyon is hot on his trail, drilling 88% of his underhanded shots from the foul line this season.
Canyon has three older brothers who have played in the NBA, and another who won a National Championship in 1988 with the Kansas Jayhawks. Let’s see how far he can carry on the family legacy as the Gators get ready for the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
