Kansas hosted its midnight madness event "Late Night at the Phog" on Friday, and it was a very lucrative event for one lucky Jayhawk student. Jerrod Martin Castro took home a check for $10,000, after Kansas director of basketball operations Brennan Bechard drilled a half-court shot on his behalf.

To ensure this was legit, head coach Bill Self signed the check himself on the spot.
