A talented cheerleader hit a million-to-one shot during halftime of her school’s game on Thursday.

Ashlee Arnau, a 21-year-old junior cheerleader for William Carey University in Hattiesburgh, Miss., combined some gymnastics tumbling with basketball. Arnau picked up the ball as she was doing a front handspring/soccer-style throw-in, then drained a half-court shot with an overhead heave during halftime of the William Carey-Auburn University Montgomery game.

Even though Arnau made it look easy, getting that shot to fall has been difficult.

According to The Dagger, Arnau, who also plays soccer and runs track for the school, has been trying the shot at halftime of every game since Christmas. She told The Associated Press that she usually tries it about four or five times and that she has come close but never made it until Thursday. The make came on her fifth attempt at halftime of the team's last home game of the season.

Here’s a look at the incredible shot from a different angle:

  • Lol...i noticed that too...haters. hahahaha! Fat Albert!
  • Fat Albert and his crew in the back ground are too cool to appreciate the great shot.
  • That was good but next she should be twirling a baton also.
    Oops, that might be chauvinistic. Instead, let's see her do it
    blindfolded.
