Fans go wild as Alabama student drains halfcourt shot to win $19k

Alabama basketball hosts No. 4 Tennessee for a must-see SEC showdown. The big-time matchup warranted ESPN’s College GameDay to make the trip to Coleman Coliseum for the first time ever. One Crimson Tide fan made the absolute most out of it.

To win $19,000, one student had to make a halfcourt shot. For the their time on College GameDay this season, they did it.

The student, Ayvion Cooley, drained the shot, ran around the court to celebrate, and then hit the infamous Crimson Crane move.

Everyone in Coleman Coliseum went wild, but so did fans online, who were quick to react with excitement. Here’s what they had to say.
