Justin Dougherty made a half-court basket during a second-half time out in an Oklahoma City Thunder game Sunday night to win $20,000.

He’s a sports reporter for KOLR, Channel 10, in Springfield. His current significant other is Sydney Friar, formerly of El Dorado Springs and the 2011 Miss Missouri.

Sydney told the Sun on Monday that she bought him the tickets for his birthday. She said there was no snow at the game on Sunday.
