DES MOINES, Iowa — While most of the nation was watching election returns Tuesday night, a few hundred fans were on hand at the Knapp Center in Des Moines for Drake University’s Bulldog Madness event.
As part of the festivities, Drake freshman Alex Tillinghast took the court to take part in a contest. All he had to do was hit four shots, from four different spots on the floor, in under 30 seconds and he’d win a brand new truck.
Things didn’t start off very well for Alex, he missed his first few shots but in the end he beat the odds, making his final shot from half court just before the buzzer sounded.
Alex stopped by the Channel 13 studios to talk with Sonya and Andy about his exciting win!
