Florida Basketball Ad Shot at UF’s Levin College of Law


University of Florida basketball players Lee Humphrey and Sha Brooks, pictured above, recently brought their game to the Rare Book Room at the Levin College of Law to shoot a commercial that will air on local television stations in the near future.

The commercial begins with Humphrey and Brooks dutifully doing their homework. Brooks then reaches over to her notebook and rips out a piece of paper. Quickly crumpling the paper into a ball, Brooks shows off her basketball shooting form and sinks it into a nearby garbage can.

Spying her, Humphrey takes the challenge and responds by making a shot one of his own. A shooting battle ensues until UF Women’s Basketball Coach Carolyn Peck opens the door, causing Humphrey and Brooks to rush back to their seats and try to convince Coach Peck that they’re really studying very hard.

At the end of the commercial, Coach Peck walks away with the garbage can—giving the players a look that indicates she knew all along that they were fooling around.
