Sac State used to have one where everyone was able to come onto the court at halftime and line up for free throws. If you made one you got a dollar. Helps we have a middle school gym.

NMSU used to do a Tuition giveaway if you made a half-court shot. They also had a "Black Parking Sticker" which let you park anywhere on campus. I do not remember what you had to do for that one.

One that did not happen was when Bobby Knight came to town with Texas Tech they said they were going to do a chair throwing contest, but they cancelled it. I also seem to remember a Lobo piñata that you could wack for like $.25 a swing.

RE: One word: Promotions
A few years ago for MBB NMSU had a season long theme called What Will they do next. One game they gave away 10 free flat screen tv's. They gave away 20 pound turkey's at thanksgiving. They had the Zooperstars as a half time act. There were some pretty cool things they did that year. There were also some pretty lame things that they did that season too. However they never made it known what promo was going on during which game. It never moved the needle attendance wise. IMO this was all done by the marketing guys at the time to save their jobs. Up until then they only marketed game via social media. Never did a whole lot promotion wise. They never did any promotions for games like that until it was announced that the AD at the time was not getting his contract renewed. It was known that those guys sat around watching TV and only doing their jobs a couple hours a week. After six months on the job our current AD had evaluated his department. He made it known to people to shape up or ship out. 3 of the 4 marketing guys chose to ship out.

Best promotion (when we were UTPA): the ticket stub got you a free pizza at Pizza Hut if we scored over 100 points.

Other good ones (mostly UTPA): cheerleaders throwing Whataburgers into the stands after 3 point shots; one random student getting to try a $10,000 shot from 3/4 court.

Worst one: lengthy half-time shooting contest against another team of contestants. Used to get you a bottle of off-brand BBQ sauce - one bottle for the whole team - but I guess the budget's short or the donor fell through 'cause now it's just "hearty congratulations" from the announcer.
