During the school’s annual “Bluenanza” event, two Buccaneer students each selected a player from the team to attempt a half-court shot. If the player made the long-distance toss, their student would receive free tuition.
Payne promptly stepped up and drilled the half-court heave, making a winner out of student Garrett Pack. Not to be outdone, student Jeremiah Pearson selected Cromer, who poured in a half-court shot of his own.
Whose shot was better? The nod goes to Payne who clearly stated just before shooting, “You’re about to go to school for free.”
