ANOTHER 10K – Coach Bill Self wrote a $10,000 check for Jordan Stiers after director of basketball operations Brennan Bechard sank a half-court shot for the second time in two years. Self offered to write a personal check for two students should a selected shooter make the long shot. Bechard’s sharp shooting beat the even longer second-time odds, which allowed Stiers to give the prize to her grandmother.
