Cheerleader Ashlee Arnau usually spends her time on the basketball court raising the spirit of the crowd. On Thursday night, she raised the roof at William Carey University in Hattiesburg, Miss., by performing a front-flip half-court shot.
A basketball was placed in the middle of the court. Arnau ran toward it, did a front-flip, grabbed the ball while upside-down and tossed it toward the basket as she righted herself.
The ball went through the hoop, and the crowd went wild.
According to The Associated Press, the 21-year-old nursing student had spent months trying to make the halftime shot during home basketball games, but this was the first time she succeeded. As luck would have it, Arnau completed the amazing feat during the last home game of the season.
