Waukesha resident makes half-court shot at Bucks game, wins $5,000

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Big shots were falling at the BMO Harris Bradley Center Friday night. But none bigger than the one Bucks fan Jake Senger hit during a third quarter time-out.

The Waukesha resident earned the chance to take a shot at $5,000 from half court of the Bucks floor like so many others this season, but unlike the other contestants -- he made it!

Participants in the Potawatomi Hotel and Casino Jackpot Shot were selected from entries submitted online. Two shooters take the court to shoot free throws. The contestant who makes the most free throws wins two court-side seats to an upcoming game and goes to half court to take their best shot.

If the shot is made, as was the case by Senger, the contestant wins $5,000 from Potawatomi Hotel and Casino.
