There was a new twist to Friday’s “Late Night In The Phog,” the 2015-16 Kansas basketball kickoff.

As an added twist, the students could pick anyone in the building to take the shot for them — other than a current KU player or KU recruit.

Let’s just say Jerod Martin Castro, who was the male student, chose wisely. He picked former KU player and current director of basketball operations Brennan Bechard to take the shot. Bechard made it and Self wrote the check as promised:
