Lottery winners shoot hoops for big dollars

Albany- Some south Georgians showed off their basketball skills today for one chance at a million dollars.

The Georgia Lottery Corporation held their Million-Dollar Hoopla promotion at Albany Mall. 32 contestants shot free throws. The one who made the most will go to Atlanta for a chance at a million bucks.

Donalsonville's Charles North had big plans for the money. "Well im getting a little old. I think I could park part of it and in a year or two, make a good retirement for me and my wife," says North.

Ten finalists from around Georgia will compete for the million at the Atlanta Hawks game on April 1st.
