The players and coaches were not the only ones making a huge paycheck at a Milwaukee Bucks' game this week.

Craig Wambold of Dousman won $10,000 in the "Jackpot Shot" contest at halftime of the Bucks' win over Cleveland. Two contestants shoot free throws, and whoever makes the most shots in 30 seconds gets to try a shot from half-court for big money.

Many have tried the shot and failed. Wambold sunk the 47-foot shot, winning the big prize paid by Potawatomi Bingo Casino.
