Plenty of half-court hopefuls have felt the pressure as they prepared to attempt a 47-foot basketball shot to win some free swag.
Imagine how it feels when you’ve got $11,000 on the line.
For freshman Lem Turner, it felt pretty good—when his throw touched nothing but the net as it sailed through, earning him a full semester’s worth of out-of-state tuition.
He’s the first Ball State University student in three years to score the free tuition.
The half-court shot has become an annual tradition for welcome week festivities at the aptly-named Indiana school.
