MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. (WXIA) - Fame is fickle. Particularly in politics or sports. Think Marco Rubio's water bottle from last week.

However, this week it's a fingernail.

Now, another offering of how you can get real famous, real quick, in real time -- the key here is by keeping it real.

Here is the story of one local athlete who did just that.

Shanteona Keys is from Roswell and attends Georgia College in Milledgeville. She is the best player on her team and the most accomplished off the court.

A 4.0 student and the leading scorer averaging 16 points per game.

But this week, Shanteona went viral.

She missed a free throw that one website described as the "worst in basketball history."

As she was attempting the shot, her fingernail caught her nostril and the ball went only a few feet high.

Shanteona has a wonderful sense of humor about her basketball moment. She explains with grace and laughter.

Watch the video to see the shot seen round' the world.
