$1 million shot we never got to see

Bobbi and Jimmy Windham show off BB&T's $2,500 check.
How many of us tuned in at halftime of last Friday night’s Duke-Maryland game to watch Bradenton’s Jimmy Windham attempt to sink three baskets for a cool $1 million?

We got shut out because he bricked all three shots from the 3-point arc at the BB&T Million Dollar Bank Shot Challenge at the storied ACC Tournament.

ESPN wasn’t showing that.

“You would’ve heard me yelling all the way from Greensboro, N.C., if I’d won,” Jimmy said. “But they were safe on that bet.”

He still got $2,500 and a whirlwind four-day, all-expenses paid weekend with wife Bobbi.

Jimmy had entered an online contest and was one of 12 names drawn, one for each ACC team.

Along with sons Hunter and Jackson, they’ll be at the ongoing NCAA tournament games in Tampa.
