Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown has gained new bragging rights for his campaign — his basketball prowess.

The Republican, who is facing a tough election battle against Democrat Elizabeth Warren, nailed a half-court shot during a visit to a youth center.

And now his campaign is circulating video of the underarm throw, complete with Brown being mobbed by third-graders in awe of his accuracy.

Making things even sweeter for Brown — who shocked the political establishment in 2010 by winning the seat held for decades by Sen. Edward Kennedy — was that he made the shot at a youth center in Hyannis, Mass., the family seat of the Kennedy family.

Brown is no stranger to the court. He was known as “Downtown Scottie Brown” when he played college hoops for Tufts.
