MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — An incoming freshman has won free tuition for a semester at Ball State University after sinking a half-court shot.

Lem Turner of Illinois made the lucky shot Thursday night during a freshman pep rally for this year's athletic events at Worthen Arena. The event was held as part of the school's welcome festivities.

Ball State says it was the second time in three years that a student has made a half-court shot to win tuition for a semester. The other student did it in August 2013.
