Jack Lavery, a freshman at West Chester University in Pennsylvania, needed to make four shots to win $10,000. It starts with a layup, then a free-throw, followed by a three-pointer, and finally it ends with a half-court shot.
Jake hit them all.
But, he's not getting $10,000. Jake missed his first attempt at a half-court shot. But, he still had time left on the shot clock. The announcer encouraged him to continue. So, he heaved a prayer as time expired and the shot banked in.
Jake was told that he wouldn't get $10,000 because the half-court make was on his second attempt. Lavery and his father are requesting a copy of the contract he signed. Jake's father, Bill, tells NBC Philadelphia, "We kind of feel a little let down. They made him believe he won after the shot. It's kind of frustrating."
