What a day for Wayne Hanlin!  He lives in West Virginia and has been a lifelong U of L fan. It was his first time to Louisville with his wife, Caitlin, his first Cards game, and then he got the chance of a lifetime at halftime!

BMW of Louisville sponsored the halftime contest, in which one fan was selected to attempt to make a layup, free throw, three-pointer and half-court shot in 30 seconds. Hanlin successfully made the first three, but released his half-court shot just after time expired. As it went in, fans cheered and Hanlin celebrated, but officials decided his shot hadn’t made it in under the 30 seconds.

Fans didn’t like that decision and BMW of Louisville owner Adrian Miron agreed, so Wayne was presented with the brand new car later in the game!!
