Teacher stuns pranksters with half-court shot

A high school basketball coach in Kansas got the last laugh on his team when he hit a half-court shot blindfolded.

Joel Branstorm was told he would win tickets to the NCAA Final Four if he made the basket. The team blindfolded him at a pep rally last week. On Tuesday, they spun him around a few times and watched as he made the shot.

The students never had the tickets, thinking their coach would miss the shot. So, they ended up buying him a gift card to a restaurant.
