High school students are beginning to make playing basketball with one arm look easy. It's not, and they should be commended for not letting a congenital disability get in the way of being a baller.

First, Georgia's Zach Hodskins committed to the University of Florida as a preferred walk-on this past fall.

On Thursday, Michigan's Geno Policicchio pulled off an astounding behind-the-back basket.

Now, St. Louis (Mo.) University High sophomore Max Bredenkoetter joins the list of impressive one-armed basketball moments this season (h/t MaxPreps). During halftime of a "Paint it Pink" Coaches vs. Cancer game against crosstown rival Christian Brothers College High, Bredenkoetter, whose right arm ends just below the elbow, became one of two students to sink a halfcourt shot with a $100 prize on the line.

In the video obtained by MaxPreps, Bredenkoetter and SLUH athletic director Dick Wehner -- dressed in a fantastically appropriate pink suit -- exchange an awesome high-five after the shot rattled home.

Even better, Bredenkoetter and SLUH senior Josh Keil, who also connected on a halftime halfcourt attempt, immediately donated their winnings to cancer research, according to Wehner's Twitter account.
