LAKELAND (FOX 13) - A freshman at Florida Southern College is $10,000 richer after hitting an amazing half-court shot Wednesday.
Students Mark Bucknam and Connor Angell, both tennis players for the school, went to the basketball game after tennis practice.
Connor talked Bucknam into signing up for a half-court shot contest with a $10,000 prize. And he made it!
Florida Souther Athletics' Facebook page posted the video, saying, "congrats to Florida Southern freshman Mark Bucknam on winning the $10,000 half-court shot contest at Wednesday's night's men's basketball game against Palm Beach Atlantic."
