Former UK Wildcat sinks half-court shot, wins new pair of Nikes for child

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A child won a new pair of Nike shoes after former University of Kentucky basketball star Karl-Anthony Towns sunk a half-court shot.

Towns was back in Kentucky this weekend to host his Summer Slamfest basketball camp. During Sunday's session, Towns, who now plays for the Minnesota Timberwolves, was told if he sunk a half-court shot, he would win one lucky kid a pair of special-ordered Nike shoes.

Towns delivered in stunning fashion.
