A KU student walked away from the annual "Late Night in the Phog" $10,000 richer Saturday night.

Basketball head coach Bill Self offers a hand-written check to a random student each year if someone can make a half-court shot on his or her behalf.

This year, Jordan Stiers won the lottery and selected Director of Basketball Operations Brennan Bechard as her shooter.

Bechard, a former player, drained the half court shot for the second year in a row.

Self signed his own personal check on the floor.

Stiers wiped away tears as she told KU she is giving the entire check to her grandmother, who rescued her from foster care.
