Sometimes an opportunity comes along and you just have to take a shot. And just one day into the new school year, that's exactly what Indiana freshman Markus Burden did. During a “Welcome Week” event for Ball State University students, the 18-year-old from Frankfort, Illinois managed to rise to the challenge and sank a basketball from the half-way line. His efforts paid off and his shot won him free tuition for his spring semester. Ball State University has been sponsoring the contest for several years, but this is the first time a student has actually managed to make the show and claim the prize. Burden, who is studying marketing, will receive $11,000 to go towards his tuition costs for the upcoming semester.
