After speculation on Twitter and YouTube, and interference from an insurance company that could have nullified the prize, a Connecticut dad is getting to keep a car he won after sinking a half-court shot in a contest staged during a college hoops game.
On Monday night, during Fairfield men's basketball game against Loyola at Webster Bank Arena, John Queenan sank a sweet shot from half-court, netting him the keys to a brand new Chevy Cruze. However, the insurance company for a group of Chevrolet dealers who sponsored the prize blocked Queenan from collecting, stating his foot may have stepped over the half-court line, nullifying his shot.
However, thanks in part to the reaction of the shot through social media -- and negative reaction when people found out Queenan couldn't collect -- CTPost.com reports a local car dealer stepped in and got Queenan in the driver's seat Wednesday. "It was the right thing to do," said Leo Karl, the president of Karl Chevrolet in New Canaan, Connecticut.
