Mom’s half-court shot to win half-off daughter’s tuition goes viral

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. » A Minnesota mom says she said a little prayer before hoisting a basketball half-court and sinking her shot to win thousands of dollars off her daughter’s private school tuition.

Angela Ramey and her daughter, Grace raised the most money in a school fundraiser at Bethany Academy in Bloomington, Minnesota, earning three chances to make the half-court shot and knock $4,000 off tuition next year.

In a video shot by the school, Grace gave her mom the basketball and on the final try Angela launched it under hand. It bounced, swished through the net and the crowd went wild. The mother and daughter screamed with joy.

The Rameys were in New York today for an appearance on ABC’s “Good Morning America” to celebrate the winning basket.

    Actually, she misses. The ball bounces off the floor and into the basket. I guess they were just being generous.
