Bucks fan hits half-court shot to win carPosted by Inside Hoops
We’re not sure if this one even hit the rim, but no matter how it went in, Michael Hall of East Troy, Wisconsin, will trade in his beat-up wheels for a hard earned 2008 Chevy Malibu for sinking a half court shot during halftime of the Bucks vs. Nets game Saturday night at the Bradley Center.
The half-time competition has become a staple at Bucks home games throughout the years. At each Bradley Center-based contest, two random fans are selected to participate in the Chevy Super Shot 2007-2008 Midwest Airlines Skyshots Competition. Both contestants are given 24 seconds to make as many free throws as possible. The shooter with the most made free throws advances to half-court for one shot at the coveted grand prize – the 2008 Chevrolet Malibu.
Hall was attending his second Bucks game of the year when he was approached and asked to be a part of the contest. “I usually get to nine or ten games a year,” Hall said. “The car I own right now is pretty old and beat-up, so this is perfect.”
The Chevy Super Shot 2007-2008 Midwest Airlines Competition is sponsored by Chevrolet, Midwest Airlines and the Milwaukee Bucks.
Hall’s car will be presented to him at a future Bucks home game this season.
