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 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.
The Republican Brown is facing a fierce challenge this fall from Democrat Elizabeth Warren in one of the most closely watched senate races in the country.
