Northern Iowa student gets $10,000 after half-court shot controversy


Dalton Hinsch is getting his full prize after all. 

The Northern Iowa student was initially denied a $10,000 pirze after completing an in-game basketball shooting challenge Wednesday will, in fact, get the entire amount.

Northern Iowa athletics made the announcement Friday with a release quoting Hinsch and contest sponsor CB Seeds.

Hinsch had 24 seconds to make a layup, a free throw, a 3-pointer and a half-court shot during a timeout in the Northern Illinois-Illinois State game at McLeod Center. He seemingly completed the four-shot task in time, only to have his half-court shot ruled too late after confusion in exactly how much time had elapsed.

The contest’s rules stated a 24-second limit, but the arena emcee’s 3-2-1 countdown, audibly heard in a Twitter video, lined up with a 27-second time frame. The arena shot clock was not allowed to be used in the course of a game — only before the game or during halftime.
