Forget all those arguments about whether cheerleading is a sport, or whether it belongs in the world of sports. What Ashlee Arnau, a cheerleader at William Carey University in Hattiesburg, Miss., did on Thursday night should make all athletes pause and wonder what they’ve done on the court/pitch/field lately. Arnau has been trying a special halfcourt shot at every home basketball game this year since Christmas, according to Yahoo! Sports. The move involves her doing a forward flip and heaving the ball at the hoop with a soccer-type throw-in motion. Thursday night marked the final home game for William Carey. Arnau, who also plays on the school’s soccer team, tried the shot one more time — and nailed it. Check out what may be the best halfcourt shot ever in the video below.
