Philly man sinks $10,000 half-court shot at NCAA game

    A Philadelphia man made a $10,000 shot from half court during halftime at the NCAA Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday.



    It was midway through the Butler, St. Louis game when Brad Baer was called down to the floor.

    NBC10 reports that “with the crowd watching and the camera from a spectator rolling, Bear heaved a half-court prayer and hit nothing but net.”

    A spectator caught the whole thing on camera. Click through for the video on NBC10.
