The flap began Wednesday night, when Northern Iowa student Dalton Hinsch got the chance at the prize if he made a layup, a free throw, a three-pointer and a half-court shot within what he and the crowd thought was a 30-second time frame. Hinsch made all four shots within 27 seconds, sending the crowd into a frenzy. Officials then declared Hinsch hadn't got the last shot off in time.
