4. 3-Point Challenge at Stoughton High Basketball Games
Adding to the excitement of Stoughton High basketball games, Reebok is sponsoring a 3-point challenge at halftime.
This Tuesday when the Stoughton High boys' basketball team takes on Taunton, a lucky fan will have the chance to attempt a NBA-range 3-point shot and win a $25 gift card from Reebok.
Fans will have the chance to purchase tickets for a chance to attempt the shot. Tickets are 2 for $1 and an arms length (about 15) for $5.
The winning ticket will be selected (like a raffle) and the fan will have a chance to hit a shot. If the fan makes it, he or she will win a $25 Reebok gift card. If the fan misses, a new ticket will be drawn and another fan will have a chance to win.
This will continue until either someone has made a shot or the teams come back on the court to warm up for the second half.
If no one has made a shot when the teams come back onto the court, the challenge will carry over until the next game, with the prize increasing to a $50 Reebok gift card. If someone made a shot, the prize will be $25 for the next game.
