OK, in terms of degree of difficulty, I'd have to imagine that holing a full-court putt on a basketball court -- given the speed and precision required to do so -- is a heck of a lot more difficult than draining a full-court shot with a basketball.
During the Franklin Pierce University Halftime Challenge at a basketball game on Jan. 23, student Brandon Knight attempted the putt from one baseline to the other (95 feet) with $500 on the line to a 3-inch hole -- that's 1.25 inches smaller than an actual golf hole, by the way -- to put toward airfare or books.
No problem for Knight (h/t Golf Channel):
Is it just me, or doesn't it seem a putt from that length to a hole cut that small should be worth more than 500 buckaroos in airfare or books? I don't know, what about something like a year's worth of class books from the bookstore, if not some kind of scholarship?
Franklin Pierce also won the game over Southern Connecticut State University, 81-79. Great day all around for Knight.
