What do we know about number 1-ranked Duke Men’s Basketball? Almost impossible to beat.
But this week, with seconds left to play, Nathan Bain, a point guard on the Stephen F. Autin Lumberjacks (a team Duke paid to be humiliated in a pre-season warmup game), stole the ball, drove the court and made a layup, winning the game!
Per Newsweek that was “Duke’s first non-conference home loss in 150 games, a streak that goes back to 2000.”
It also put Mr. Bain into the hot sports spotlight.
Bain is from the Bahamas where his home was crushed by Hurricane Dorian.
The college put together a crowdfunding page for his family that was getting no attention. Until Bain’s play was repeated on ESPN.
The family’s goal was $50,000 to rebuild. As of today, the crowdfunding page has hit $133,705.
