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.

Apparently basketball isn’t the only thing that Bredenkoetter is good at.
