J.P. Moorman(Greensboro Day School) hits 70-foot shot to win game for UC Riverside and he had a little help from his friend

from www.espn.com:

After he made a 70-foot shot at the buzzer to seal a 66-65 win for UC Riverside at Arizona State on Thursday night, JP Moorman II(Greensboro Day School) sent his friend a message: “This is because of you.”

That friend is Chris Paul.

The Phoenix Suns All-Star met with UC Riverside — a Big West school that considered eliminating athletics a year ago to save money — for 45 minutes prior to their upset over the Sun Devils.

Moorman, a Greensboro, North Carolina native, met Paul when he played on his grassroots squad, CP3 All-Stars. While Paul mentored him in the past, he said now they’re more like friends. When he landed in Phoenix for Thursday’s game, he asked Paul if he might have some time to talk to the team.

“It kind of worked out where I hit him up when we landed and asked him what he had going on after his game and he told me he was going to [STK Steakhouse] and asked if I wanted to come,” Moorman said. “I told him to hit me in the morning and maybe you could come by and speak to the team. He said, ‘All right, just let me know where you’re staying.’ The rest is history.”
