Now these are some student athletes

Saw this video above on MPR’s NewsCut blog when I returned to work yesterday. Makes you cheer for the underdog.

Incoming Ball State freshman Markus Burden won free tuition for a semester — worth about $11,000 — by making a half-court shot.

And Colorado State University gave freshman Andrew Schneeweis a year’s tuition worth about $9,300 for his basket.

Sweet.
