Fan hits half-court shot, misses $50,000 jackpot

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A fan made a half-court shot before the Missouri Valley Conference tournament final, but missed a $50,000 jackpot because he forgot to hit a 3 pointer first.

Alex Pertmann of Maryland Heights, Mo., made a layup on his first try and free throw on his second effort, then scampered to mid-court, where he hit nothing but net with a couple of seconds left on a 24-second clock Sunday. After being informed of the error, and with no time remaining, Pertmann went back to the 3 point line and missed a couple of attempts.

As a consolation prize, the Valley gave the 22 year old Pertmann four tickets to the conference tournament for life.

The Valley has held the promotion every season since 2004. Pertmann, who plays intramural basketball at UMSL, was the first to come close to cashing in.
