With No. 4 Duke taking on No. 2 undefeated Virginia Saturday, ESPN's College GameDay teamed up with State Farm to offer $18,000 to one lucky student who could make a half-court shot within 18 seconds.

Virginia student Tyler Lewis was more than happy to oblige. 

It took Lewis a few tries, but he found the bottom of the net on his fourth shot. After draining the half-court bomb, he jumped up on the scorer's table to do the "Superman" like he had just won the NBA Finals.
