NBC NATIONAL NEWS — U.S. Senator Scott Brown displayed some downtown range on the basketball court, and it was captured on video.
The Massachusetts senator nailed a half-court shot last Friday while visiting children at a Cape Cod rec center.
A staffer was recording the scene as Brown ran off the court to big cheers from some new fans.
Boston Celtics great Dave Cowens, a Brown supporter, praised the shot in a message posted on the senator's campaign website.
