Would You Shoot For $1000?

TWU Spartan's created some hot action this past weekend.
If someone told you that they'd give $1000,
if you took a shot from half court,
would you be brave enough to chance it?

Is Julie setting him up for failure or success?
On Friday evening, Jan. 28th,
young Samuel, a young budding ball player (10-12 years old)
took his lucky shot.
He could take his own shot from half court, or
substitute his favorite BB star to shoot for him...
He chose the latter.
He knew the challenge that lay ahead of him...
so he chose Lucian Sauciuc, TWU Spartans #10 player to shoot.
And did he SCORE...
The ball flew through the air and swished through the basket.
Young Samuel won $1000!

He Shoots!

I need to highlight Jamelle Barrett, an outstanding point guard, from the Huskies.
On Friday night he scored 42 points.
One amazing player...third year from CA.
He knows how to lead his pack.

Meanwhile the TWU Spartans brought out a record breaking crowd,
as they challenged the second placed team, SA Huskies in the Western League,
and toppled the Huskies to third place in their division.

Check out the Spartans this weekend for a last home game.
Presently, UBC holds the first title, followed by TWU Spartans in second place.
TWU Spartans will be playing there last seasonal home game
this coming weekend against Brandon, ranked 11th.
So if you need to catch up on some fast paced action,
or win $1000, here is your lucky chance.


  1. Now, this just makes me smile. Good for both of them.

    You know how I love basketball.♥

  2. It's been awhile since I paid attention to university basketball - it's always the best, isn't it?!

  3. Ha! I love it when people win these contests. Good for him for choosing well!

  4. Yay for Samuel...who knew when it was best to call in a pro!

    May TWU go all the way.

  5. He made a great choice! An expereince he'll never forget!

  6. TWU=Texas Womans University to me. I was a bit surprised that the girls were playing up there...then realized my alma mater were the Pioneers, a totally different group, eh?

    Why are you not trying to take a shot??? Or joining the Senior Women's Basketball league? My mom's friend's team came in first place in the Nationals. She was playing at age 75, and not the oldest woman on the team!

  7. Yay Spartans. ..I am cheering them on as well. Good on the lad for winning some cash.

  8. I'm so glad he was able to win the money! What a great real people story!
