Brain Buster #1

I’ve been working on a couple projects but haven’t been able to get anything up in awhile. I found this Brain Buster last night and it piqued my interest.

A basketball player who makes 80% of his free throws goes to the foul line for two shots at the end of a very close game: His team trails by two points with just 1.7 seconds remaining. If he makes both of his foul shots, the game will go into overtime.

What is the probability that he will make only one of two?
