Jay Z And Beyoncé Congratulate Thunder Fan Who Makes Half Court Shot For $20,000!

Filed under: ZportzBeyonceJay ZBasketball

At Thursday night's Oklahoma City Thunder game, a 33-year old fan by the name of Brad Brucker won a whopping $20,000 by hitting a shot from half court at halftime!

But the money and the glory of having an arena of 18,000 cheering for you seemed like nothing compared to what happened next!

The REAL prize came when he got a huge congrats from Jay Z and Beyoncé who just happened to be sitting court side for the game!

Talk about a brush with greatness!

We're sure it really would have made Brad's night even better if Hova would have brushed the dirt off his shoulders, but we're guessing a nice handshake sufficed! LOLz!

Ch-ch-check out Brad's big moment (above)!

Filed under: ZportzBasketballAwwwwwSchool

Is there any better feeling than starting your first semester of college?

YES! Not having to pay for it!

Ball State University freshman Markus Burden of Frankfort, Ill was challenegd to make a half-court shot at a Welcome Week event for a semester of free tuition.

And he nailed it on his fourth and final try!

The tuition is valued at $11,084 since he’s an out-of-state student. Burden said it was overwhelming, and when his mom heard, she started crying, adding:

“It just gives us a lot of breathing room right now.”

What a great story!

That’s what we call starting off school on the right foot!
