    Shooting contest fail

    I'm sure many of you heard about this. A guy at the MVC tourney needed to hit layup, free throw, 3 POINTER and half court shot. He hit layup, free throw passed on the three hit the half court shot. It's unreal how much the MVC gave him for his own stupidity.

    Fan hits half-court shot in MVC contest but won't get $50,000 : Sports

    Re: Shooting contest fail

    Yeah, he ended up with a nice consolation prize.

    One person raised this (sort of) in the comments when I saw this story earlier: since the half court shot is also a 3-pointer, couldn't he theoretically have launched another half court shot?

    but a three is an easier shot than hit two half court shots. I would of played it off like I forgot and if I got half court like he did I would go right to the three point line. Everyone was yelling 3. How do you tune all that out?

    I'm sure there was probably a insurance policy pulled out for this... The insurance company is the one probably not paying.

    Re: Shooting contest fail

    The title is misleading as hell. It's equivalent to saying "man one-putts green but won't win tournament" and then in the article tells you he took 14 shots to get to the green. It's not MVC not paying (or being cheap because his toe was on the line, etc) the guy only performed 75% of this required duties. Bad journalism.

    He ran out of time but, yes, he should have received whatever the prize was for making the 3-pointer and nothing more.

    Re: Shooting contest fail

    He didn't do it completely, so no money paid out. Makes sense to me
