NEW YORK (AP) Special Olympics has always been near and dear to basketball analyst Deb Antonelli.

Her 21-year-old son Frankie is a Special Olympics athlete who just completed his sophomore year in Clemson University's LifeProgram.

She wanted to do something to help raise money and awareness for South Carolina Special Olympics. So about a year ago, she came up with the concept of '24 Hours of Nothing But Net." She vowed to make 2,400 free throws - 100 per hour- for 24 straight hours. She did just that over the weekend, making 2,400 of 2,553 free throws , hitting at an amazing 94% accuracy, at the Mount Pleasant Town Hall gym.
