What do you do when you want to get your college tuition paid for? Sink a half court shot like Markus Burden did and it's a done deal.

Markus who will be a freshman at Ball State University this year sank a half-court shot to win free tuition for the spring semester and that comes out to more than $11,000. Can anyone say slam dunk?

Burden was chosen at random to take the shot, which has become a tradition at the school during it's welcome activities for the school’s incoming freshmen.

Burden was given four chances to make the basket and missed on his first three before landing the money shot and sending the gym full of his 3,700 fellow freshmen into a rowdy frenzy.

Guess you can say money wise there will be no burden for Burden this semester.
