South Dakota State University's Jackrabbits go viral after hitting five half-court shots

A video showing the women's basketball team hitting five consecutive half-court shots has gone viral.

The jaw-dropping achievement happened during Thursday's pregame warmup and has since experienced astonishing interest on Twitter. Captioned, "(The feeling when)...it's -17318299427 degrees outside but straight (fire) inside," the team is just as amazed as its fans.

Sydney Stapleton, Addison Hirschman, Paiton Burckhard, Jordan Ferrand and Lindsey Theuninck each took turns taking a shot from deep and became the stars of the show when all five buckets sank.  

According to the caption, freshman Tori Nelson also made a half-court shot but unfortunately, it was not captured in the viral video.

The energy from the pregame miracle appeared to fire the girls up for their fixture against the North Dakota Fighting Hawks as they lit up the Betty Engelstad Sioux Center in Grand Forks with a 74-61 win.
