Cameron Rodriguez, the Southwestern College basketball player who won $20,000 in an Oklahoma City Thunder half-court shot promotion, can keep his winnings, the NAIA announced Tuesday.
The NAIA, based in Kansas City, accepted the recommendation by the school, which is in Winfield, Kan., and Rodriguez that he be allowed to use the money as a scholarship.
“We’re pleased with the decision from the membership and specifically the NEC that allows Cameron to keep his winnings to use towards his education,” said Jim Carr, NAIA President and CEO. “We feel the NAIA is the student-centered association in collegiate athletics, and this decision by our membership reflects that emphasis.”
