Pizza Hut to pay student $10,000 for his half court shot (VIDEO)

Earlier this week, video of Jack Lavery appearing to win $10,000 in a halftime contest at West Chester university in Pennsylvania went viral.

Lavery was denied the money, however, because of a technicality in the rule.

He had to hit a layup, a free throws, a three-pointer and a half-court shot in succession to win the money. He made the first three and missed his first half-court shot before banking in a ridiculous, running turnaround from the mid-court line.

So the school — or, rather, the insurance company the school used to run the promotion — said they wouldn’t pay.

But Pizza Hut stepped up!

So Jack not only got his money, but a year’s worth of Pizza Hut pizza.
