Markus Burden is having more fun at college than he ever could have swished for.

The incoming freshman at Ball State University sank a half-court shot to win free tuition for the spring semester – that comes out to more than $11,000.

Burden was chosen at random to take the shot, which has become a tradition at the school during a welcome event for the school’s freshmen.

He was given four chances to make the basket and whiffed on his first three before landing the money shot and sending the gym full of his 3,700 fellow freshmen into a (jealous) frenzy.

Way to go, Markus. Can we borrow a few bucks?
