Mom sinks lucky half-court trick shot, wins free tuition

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, were in New York Thursday for an appearance on ABC’s “Good Morning America” where the winning basket was celebrated.

The Rameys raised the most money in a school fundraiser at Bethany Academy in Bloomington and recently earned three chances to make the half-court shot and knock $4,000 off tuition next year.

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.
