UK student hits halfcourt shot for $19K at College GameDay

HE SHOOTS HE SCORES!!

During ESPN College GameDay at Memorial Coliseum this morning, University of Kentucky student McKinley Webb drilled the halfcourt shot to take home $19,000.

After the make, ESPN left Webb’s mic on and caught some pretty colorful (yet hilarious) language from the excited Kentucky fan.

Here was the epic moment:

After the dust settled, Webb let the world know he just wanted to put on a show for his hometown of Pikeville, KY.

He also wanted to apologize for the language, but believes his word choice might have been justified. It is $19,000, after all…

If this isn’t a good omen for tonight’s game, I don’t know what is.

    UNC is playing on the CW right now and the quality makes it seem like a game from 20 years ago.

    $19k, 19 game winning streak on the line in 2019? If kid that made shot is 19 years old, U A smell only scored 19 in first half, something great is happening tonight, if nc state and duke go into overtime and our game don’t start until 8:19, my mind will explode!!

    Now that you hear more half court shots being made the pay-off seems to be getting smaller, although 19g’s ain’t to shabby.

      Yeah, i think I’d be pretty happy with $5k of someone’s else’s money for free.

      Also, lower payouts more likely attributed to ESPN’s financial issues.

      “ESPN’s financial issues” can be directly attributed to their unwise decision to stick their noses into partisan politics rather than sticking to sports…

    Only thing better would be him wearing blue instead of red. 😉

    I would’ve ripped that red off as soon as it went through the net! All while saying “F*** red…F*** red…F*** red”
