In 2019, ESPN and CBS basketball analyst Debbie Antonelli made 2400 free throws in 24 hours with a 94% accuracy rate. She raised more than $85,000. This year, she’s back on the court to raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics South Carolina. She’ll be doing 24 Hours of Nothing But Net, a 24-hour free throw marathon from her home court.
Starting at noon on Saturday, May 16, Debbie will kick off her 24 hour free throw marathon with her family. She can track her accuracy rate and how much money raised online. The entire event will be live streamed on YouTube and Facebook. Join her anytime during the event to help support the Special Olympics.

She and her husband Frank reside in Mount Pleasant and have three sons; Joey, Frankie and Patrick. Frankie is a Special Olympics South Carolina athlete and is a rising senior at Clemson University in the ClemsonLife program.
