During halftime of Wednesday’s Auburn – Arkansas game (the Razorbacks won, 83-75) an Auburn student won $5,000 in tuition for making a layup, free throw, 3-pointer and half-court shot in 24 seconds. The incredible part is that he missed his first two 3-point attempts. When the second attempt came off the back of the rim, I probably would have booted the ball into the stands. This kid stuck with it and hit a runner from half-court right before the buzzer sounded. If you were wondering, Auburn’s last NCAA Tournament appearance was 2003.
Always a good feeling.
It’s a war out there.
