East Tennessee State held its annual "Bluenanza" Monday night. It's designed to be a celebration of Buccaneers basketball. And during a promotion two students got to pick two players to take halfcourt shots for them in an attempt to win free tuition.
A student named Garrett Pack picked Devontavius Payne.
A student named Jeremiah Pearson picked T.J. Cromer.
It went well for both.
How about that?
Two shots. Two free tuitions. And the best part is that Payne legit called it. Before shooting, as you can see in the video, the JUCO transfer told the crowd that Pack was "about to go to school for free." He was right. Awesome stuff.
"It was crazy," East Tennessee State coach Steve Forbes told CBS Sports late Monday. "Not sure that's ever happened before."
