While everyone is waiting for Kentucky Wildcats vs. Tennessee Volunteers, one lucky UK fan is already having the time of his life.

As usual when ESPN College GameDay is in town, a student from the host school was allowed a chance to win $19,000 in a shooting contest setup by ESPN. All McKinley Webb had to do was hit a halfcourt shot before time expired to win the money.

Of course, hitting from halfcourt is easier said than done, especially when you have so much on the line. But Webb drilled a shot as time was winding down to win the the big payday, then was mobbed by the entire UK team

(Warning: Contains NSFW language):

That’s a great way to kick off what hopes to be a special day in Lexington.
