According to Jay,  these were done by KLFY and KATC when Blackham Coliseum was ready to make way for the Cajundome. 1985.

There's a gap of about 12 seconds between the two features, so let it play out.

Watch Bo shoot his 360 degree shot and his patented jump shots beyond the non-existent 3 point line.
