You may have had a great weekend, but it was nothing compared to Joe Thompson's weekend! At Saturday's MSU vs UM men's basketball game, the halftime promotion was to let a student in the audience attempt a full-court shot to win $11,111. Bobcat Joe Thompson nailed it and promptly paid tribute to Kobe by throwing a '2' '4' in the air. Winning that kind of dough is a big deal for anyone, but especially a college student who likely has a ton of debt. See the winning basket and an interview with Joe below.

Sadly for Bozeman, Joe's win was not mirrored by the MSU Bobcats, the Grizzlies won the game 59-54. Griz don't play at home again until March 5th.
