What would you do with quick $100,000?

That's the question former Chadron State men's basketball player Evan Brooks can answer today after nailing a half-court shot Sunday during the L.A. Lakers game as part of the team's halftime entertainment promotions.

 According to CSC Sports historian Con Marshall, the native of Ontario, Calif played for the Eagles in both 2013-14 and 2014-15.  He averaged 8.9 points and made 41 3-point shots the first year, and averaged 11.8 points and nailed 54 treys his senior year.  The latter percentage is the fifth best among Chadron State men since the 3-pointer became a part of the college game in the mid-1980s. 

After Brooks' playing career he made a guest appearance with CSC Voice of the Eagles Dave Collins on radio broadcasts of Chadron State basketball providing color commentary during the radio call.

We've reached out to Brooks for comment on his incredible moment and will update this story.
