College basketball fans are famous for their antics, and one Belmont Bruins fan showed us why as he belted Miley Cyrus song ‘Wrecking Ball’ loud enough to distract a UNC free throw attempt.

Miley Cyrus has found herself in countless headlines since her infamous performance at the VMAs, but this one is particularly strange. It also has nothing to do with her twerking, using molly, or licking anything. All in all it is a positive reason for her music to be in the news, a rarity of late.

The Belmont Bruins were an underdog heading into their contest against UNC, but were able to score a huge win against a ranked opponent early on in the season. An 83-80 victory over a bonafide blue blood will go a long way towards a tournament berth in March.

The upset victory took everything that Belmont had, including a fan singing Miley Cyrus hit song ‘Wrecking Ball.’

Early on in the contest Belmont had a small 18-16 lead over North Carolina. UNC’s James McAdoo drew a foul and stepped to the line, as he was about to shoot the ball a fan belted out the Miley Cyrus song loud enough for the entire stadium to hear.

Listen to the Belmont fan do his best Miley Cyrus kareoke and make McAdoo of UNC miss his free throw below.

Distractions are part of shooting a free throw, but its hard to prepare for a fan hilariously breaking into song. A man singing Miley Cyrus is not something you hear every day, and UNC clearly did not see that coming when they attempted that free throw.
