A Marquette fan who entered into a verbal contract with Providence star Kris Dunn during Wednesday’s game has found a way to honor his $10 bet with Dunn while not running afoul of the NCAA’s rules regarding impermissible benefits.
Marquette student Jamey Schilling says he promised to give Dunn ten bucks if he missed a free throw late in Providence’s double-overtime loss to the Golden Eagles. Whether or not Dunn accepted the bet, Schilling held up his end of the bargain.
It’s probably a pretty bad bet for Schilling to have made. Even though Dunn was 6 of 8 from the line on Wednesday, he’s shooting just 67.7% on free throws for the season.
