Remember WCU student Jack Lavery who hit a half court shot on the second try for $10,000 but the school wouldn’t pay? Well it turns out he just got his happy ending because Pizza Hut has stepped up and will pay him the $10 grand and give him free pizza for the year:
I feel incredibly blessed and honored to be awarded the generous gift of $10k and free pizza for a year! Thank you @pizzahut You guys rock

I said that the school should just do the right thing and soak up the good publicity. Now Pizza hut looks like the good guys (and they are) with this gesture. Congrats Jack.
