SHERMAN, TX -- Austin College hosted a wheelchair basketball shoot out Saturday night.

The competition took place during half time of the Austin College Basketball season opener. It was sponsored by students of the Rotaract Club to raise money for The Wheelchair Foundation, which sponsors wheelchairs for those in need.

It is estimated that 100 million people worldwide need wheelchairs and that only one percent can afford one.

Students say they are glad to raise awareness for the cause while having fun.
