Cheerleader makes incredible half-court basketball trick shot

(CBS News) With the work day coming to a close and the weekend approaching fast, I'd say it's about time to celebrate. And I would say that the idea of celebrating right now is a total "slam dunk", if it weren't for the fact that our video above is more of a "three-pointer". You won't believe this one...

The incredible, half-court trick shot was posted by YouTube user Nathan Epstein who writes:

Ashlee Arnau, a cheerleader at William Carey University in Hattiesburg, MS, provided the highlight of the night with an incredible, acrobatic, half-court shot.....and oh yeah, she MADE IT!
I just want to say that Ashlee has skills I could never in my wildest dreams hope to match. I mean, seriously, that shot was simply incredible! And special thanks goes out to Nathan from us here at The Feed for sharing this caught-on-tape, once-in-a-lifetime shot for us and the world to see.
