One year later, William Carey student sinks amazing half-court shot...again

Posted: Updated:
HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

In a split-second, Ashlee Arnau became a world-wide internet sensation. The then-junior now Senior cheerleader at William Carey University not only sank a half-court shot during halftime of a Carey men's basketball game, she did it somersaulting, grabbing the ball off the ground in mid-somersault, and catapulting it for a 45-foot make, making her shot Internet gold.

Arnau flew to New York last year for a sit-down interview on the "Today" show, Fox and Friends, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Sports Center.

About a year later, Arnau sinks the shot again at another William Carey Basketball game Thursday night.

Watch the attached video to see Arnau in action.
