ST. LOUIS, Feb. 28 (UPI) -- During halftime of the Coaches for Cancer game between St. Louis University High School and Christian Brothers High School in St. Louis, Mo., last Friday night, spectators got a special treat.
St. Louis University student Max Bredenkoetter buried a half court shot using only his left hand and won $100. He wasn’t only using his left hand to show off; Bredenkoetter has no right arm below his elbow.
After making the bucket, Bredenkoetter celebrated with SLUH athletic director Dick Wehner and the offered to donate his winnings to cancer research.
