Ball State freshman Markus Burden knows how to start his life as a college student the right way. Burden was randomly selected from the crowd during the university's Welcome Week event to attempt a half-court shot for free tuition for a semester, and he drilled it.
According to The Indianapolis Star's Stephanie Wang, Burden said he missed three times before making his fourth and final attempt at the half-court shot. His out-of-state tuition is worth $11,084.
Per Wang, the perfect form on his half-court shot comes from plenty of time spent goofing around with his friends on the court.
