Controversy Over $10K Half-Court Shot [Video]
Kentucky freshman Vincent Swope sank a half-court shot to win a halftime contest during Saturday’s game against South Carolina, he did a victory lap around sold-out Rupp Arena. Organizers of the contest approached Swope in the midst of his celebration with a copy of the contract he’d signed and a video replay of the shot. They said the supermarket chain Kroger might not be willing to pay the $10,000 since Swope appeared to take the shot a few inches beyond the mid-court stripe.
