A college basketball cheerleader half court shot is now going viral. But just to inform everyone that her trick can be repeated, William Carey cheerleader Ashlee Arnau did it again. This time, she did it in front of a Harlem Globetrotter member Firefly Fisher, who also tried to do it. Both videos are available below.

As noted in Yahoo Sports on Thursday, February 21, 2013, Ashlee Arnau made her amazing half court shot during the halftime break of a basketball game. Her school, William Carey University in Hattiesburg, Mississippi was playing against Auburn-Montgomery, for the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).

Arnau, who is also a part-time soccer and track athlete, can be seen running towards the basket and picked up the basket ball in half court in an upside down position. And as she stands up, she released the ball towards the goal in one motion – nothing but net!

“She has been close on several occasions but tonight she nailed it on senior night. Place went crazy.” William Carey sports information director D.J. Pulley was quoted in the report. And truly indeed! The crowd went wild, along with with fellow cheerleaders, with Arnau screaming with excitement and jumping with joy.

The following day, Friday, Arnau proved that lightning can strike twice. The William Carey cheerleader repeated her incredible half court shot, but this time, in front of a smaller crowd and Firefly Fisher, who first made a half court shot by simply throwing the ball, which is a normal sight these days.

But when Ashlee Arnau performed her trick again, Fisher was stunned. And well, what is Harlem Globetrotter for if Firefly will not make his own attempt? Not surprisingly, he nailed it too. But definitely, it was not as graceful as the way the William Carey cheerleader did it.
