LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - A half-court basket has made a Kansas Jayhawks fan $10,000 richer.

The Lawrence Journal-World (https://bit.ly/1LcMIFo ) reports that Brennan Bechard, a former Jayhawk and the team’s current director of basketball operations, made the shot Friday night during the latest edition of Late Night in the Phog. The basket won Kansas sophomore Jerrod Martin a $10,000 personal check from head coach Bill Self. In the contest, fans got to choose someone to shoot for them.

The evening of entertainment kicks off the start of the 2015-16 season. The festivities also included speeches, a lip-sync competition and dance performances by members of the men’s and women’s teams. Fans also got a chance to watch the players scrimmage.
