Ball State Freshman Sinks Basket For Free Tuition: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

Welcome Week got even brighter for one Ball State freshman. After being selected at random to participate, the young man sank a half-court shot, winning his tuition paid for a semester. Congratulations to him and the rest of the Class of 2019!


YouTube video description

Lem Turner nails it, nothing-but-net, the crowd goes bonkers and Turner runs around the basketball court like a whirling dervish on crack, hugging faculty, fellow students and even the freaking mascot.

For hitting such a miraculous shot under such terrific pressure Turner deserves to have his tuition paid for an entire year, not just a measly semester.

Congrats to Turner, he`s a scholar, gentleman and a terrific basketball player.
