Video: Drake Student Hits Miracle Half-Courter At Buzzer To Win Ford F-150, Team Goes Insane In Celebration

Every basketball fan has dreamed of hitting a half-courter at the buzzer - whether it's to win an actual game or to win one of those pre-contest prize competitions. Drake student Alex Tillinghast, a first-year student at the school, did just that this week, sending the Bulldogs team into a frenzy. After missing multiple layup, free throw and 3-point attempts, Tillinghast had just seven seconds to hit both a 3-pointer and a half-court shot. He proceeded to bank in the first and swish the second. Check it out:
