It’s relatively common to attend a basketball game, and see someone participate in a promotion to attempt a half-court shot for money.

Sometimes, they make it. Other times, they miss. And then, there’s the rare occasion where they make the shot and have an insurance company get out of paying up due to a technicality.

But Montana State probably thought it was in the clear when it held a FULL-COURT shot contest on Saturday night for a game against Montana. The school had student, Joe Thompson, attempt a series of full-court heaves from the corner of the opposite baseline. It’s an incredibly difficult shot, so, naturally, this happened:

I mean … wow.

Thompson made the side-armed, full-court shot with about four seconds to spare on the clock. For the effort, he’ll get to cash in a cool $11,111.

And I doubt sponsor Montana’s Rib & Chop House could have seen that one coming. It was like the scene from Semi-Pro come to life.


Just an impossible shot.
