Student wins truck in nail biting shoot out

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES (WKOW) --

Like many colleges before it -- Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa recently held a basketball shoot out contest.

If a student made a lay-up, a free throw, a three pointer and a half court shot in 30 seconds they could win a 2014 ford f-150.

It didn't seem likely that freshman Alex would go home with the grand prize. Not after he misses his first attempt at a lay up. And then struggles at the three point line.

But in the final seconds, he nails the half court shot on first first try.

Needless to say, the crowd goes wild -- and Alex leaves the court with a brand new truck.
