Even NBA players wouldn’t want to play this cheerleader in a game of horse.
Ashlee Arnau, a cheerleader at William Carey University in Hattiesburg, Mississippi landed on Sportscenter’s highlight reel last week after draining a trick shot that most players wouldn’t even think to try.
During the halftime of a William Carey game last Thursday, Arnau charged towards midcourt, did a front-flip and scooped up the ball while inverted, creating a catapult-like motion that launched the ball through the net. Arnau, who is also a soccer player at William Carey, said she received inspiration from a similar trick move that soccer players do when throwing the ball in, but said she hardly practiced the shot.
I really don’t practice at all,” Arnau told the AP, via ESPN.com.
Although Arnau doesn’t practice the shot during her off-time, she said she had been trying to perfect it all season by attempting it at each home game. Amazingly, she finally nailed it on her final attempt during the final home game of the season.
“Everyone was going crazy,” said Arnau. “They were cheering my name.”
