To many, the half-court shot during breaks of a basketball game are the most exciting parts. Teams give away tickets, money and other amazing prizes, and when one miraculously goes in, it is a thing of beauty.

However, for one of the most impressive instances of this, there was no prize and it was not a lucky fan that was chosen. Instead, it was the ball boy for the North Carolina Tar Heels that was putting up shots, and he got a half-court bucket to fall in front of an arena of fans.

But then another fell, and another. The UNC ball boy could not miss, hitting three half-court shots in a row, which is nearly impossible, even for the greatest players.

The third make was met with an arena full of fans exploding in joy and support, making the ball boy truly feel like it was the game-winning shot.

It is great that this was caught on tape for the memory to truly last forever.
