Markus Burden is having a decent first week of college. The Ball St. freshman, an Illinois native, was randomly picked from the crowd at John E. Worthen arena during at “Welcome Week” event last Thursday. His opportunity? One halfcourt shot…for one free year of college.

Simple enough. Eleven thousand dollars in tuition could be washed away with one swish of the net.

Nailed it. Nothing but net too.

Good for you, Markus.

Oh and, by the way, a David Letterman is on the phone? Says he’s a Ball St. alum and that he’s got some time of show he might like to have you stop by?
