Auburn student Stephen Bass executed a layup, free throw, three-point shot (after an air ball and brick) and a half-court shot attempt at the buzzer to win a $5,000 scholarship.
Positives: he won $5,000.
Negatives: he won’t actually get to spend a penny of it.
Compared to a Miami Heat fan who sunk just a single half-court shot less than a month ago, Bass got completely ripped off.
The Heat fan won a whopping $75,000 for his improbable field goal. And on top of reeling in 15 times more money than Bass, Miami’s fan got a hug from LeBron James.
For some, that alone would be worth $5,000.
