Here's the $10,000 challenge: Make a layup, a free throw, a three-pointer and a half-court shot in 30 seconds.
That challenge would be hard even for an NBA player, so imagine how tough it would be for someone who doesn't play basketball at all.
Unbelievably in Tennessee, a Bryan College student from England, beat the odds and won himself some tuition money. It is even more remarkable considering he is a soccer player who has never played basketball before…..and had a broken finger on his left hand.
The senior incredibly went 4-of-4 on his shots and was able to beat the clock. That set off a huge celebration in the gym, with nobody happier than a student who just won $10,000.

Staind vocalist Aaron Lewis apologized for messing up the National Anthem before Game 5 of the World Series where he mixed up several of the song’s lyrics.
His apology read: "All I can say is I'm sorry and ask for the Nation's forgiveness. My nerves got the best of me and I am completely torn up about what happened. America is the greatest country in the world. The Star-Spangled Banner means so much to so many, including myself. I hope everyone can understand the intensity of the situation and my true intent of this performance. I hope that the Nation, Major League Baseball and the many fans of our national pastime can forgive me.”
However, critics were extra harsh on Lewis because he slammed Christina Aguilera for blundering the lyrics during a performance of the anthem in 2011.
