Just because it's too funny to be true, doesn't mean it isn't.

To be honest though, the girl doesn't seem to have come through the stunt very well. It happens so fast that no single frame is very clear, but I'm convinced that she really does scrape the back of her neck/head on the hoop. And the net moves believably.

The inside diameter of a hoop is 45 cm, , or about 18 inches.

This thread should be entitled: How to score with a cheerleader.

What is most unbelievable is that none of the guys checked with the camera guy after (nor before) the stunt to verify that it got on tape. Even the Powerade commercials, which contained similar unlikely athletic feats, knew to include that!

A good workman is known by his tools.

I don't think she could get though with her hands down, not even trying to keep them close to the body.
