The freshman took one dribble, leapt off both feet and scored at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Just one problem. It was the wrong basket.
Yes, Uyaelunmo, who entered the matchup averaging 4.7 points per game, committed basketball's greatest sin, and La Salle tweeted its appreciation.
Towson guard Jakigh Dottin, who threw the inbounds pass to Uyaelunmo, jumped into the air and threw his hands up when he realized what was happening.
Towson coach Pat Skerry leaned forward, put his hands on his knees and looked at the ground.
"I've never seen anything like that, but I'll take it this time," La Salle coach Ashley Howard said after the game. "We have had our share of bad breaks prior to coming to Atlantic City and any positive breaks that can go our way, I will take."
La Salle led most of the game and ended up winning 57-51.
