College tuition cost over $10,000 a year at Eastern Tennessee State University.

That's before all the extra expenses that come with attending a college in the United States.

But thanks to a pair of basketball players, two students don't have to worry about a significant portion of that.

As part of its annual "Bluenanza," basketball players attempted half-court shots to win two students free tuition for a semester.

T.J. Cromer and Devontavius Payne both stepped up at the opportunity and basically knew they were going to make the shot before even attempting it.

Naturally, they were right.

The entire gym went crazy, and now the ETSU athletic department has a couple tuitions to pay.
