FORT COLLINS, Colo. (Denver Post) A 19-year-old freshman from Greenwood Village hit the shot of his life on Saturday night.

Andrew Schneeweis won a year of free tuition after sinking a half-court shot with a basketball during a freshman pep rally at Colorado State University. He got his opportunity to shoot from a random drawing.

Schneeweis had three chances to make the shot but he only needed one. And that one was 'nothing but net'.
