Blindfolded basketball coach successfully shoots hoop


A student prank has backfired as a Kansas high school basketball coach successfully shot a hoop from halfway down the court while blindfolded.

Students at Olathe Northwest High School had planned to cheer wildly whether Joel Branstrom made the shot or not.

Thinking he would never manage it, they had said he would win four college basketball semi-final tickets - and are now looking for a suitable replacement prize.
