A one-handed basketball player has scored his first points in top-level college basketball.

Zach Hodskins missed his first five shots in the college game but, with the University of Florida’s 89-65 victory over Jacksonville secured on Wednesday (AEDT), Hodskins came off the bench.

This is NOT a sports award

Opposing forward Darius Dawkins could not keep up after a slick between-the-legs dribble and Hodskins spun into the lane to finish a nice lay-up.

He was also fouled on the play but could not make the free throw.

Hodskins was born with a birth defect that caused his left arm to end just below the elbow, but he has not let that stop him from dominating on the court.

He was a star for Milton High School in Georgia and committed to the University of Florida to play Division I basketball in the 2015/16 NCAA season.

Florida won back-to-back Division I NCAA titles in 2006 and 2007, but lost coach Billy Donovan to the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder before the start of this season.
