Student Sinks Half Court Shot To Win Free College Tuition [VIDEO]

Barely a day into the new school year, Markus Burden’s freshman year was already off to an incredible start.

During a “Welcome Week” event for Ball State University students on Thursday, the 18-year-old incoming freshman from Frankfort, Ill. sank a half court shot to win free tuition for his spring semester. According to a statement from Ball State, the university has been sponsoring the contest for several years, but Burden is the first to make the shot and win the prize.

Burden, a marketing major, said he’s only ever played rec league basketball. For his fantastic shot, the out-of-state student will get a check for more than $11,000 to go towards his spring tuition costs.
