Video: Jackson State manager Thomas ‘Snacks’ Lee steals show in final home game
The NCAA Tournament is still two weeks from tipping off, but the best moment from March Madness may already be in the books.
Jackson State held its final home game of the season on Monday night, and the Tigers sent their seniors off with a 76-56 victory over UAPB. One of those seniors was student manager Thomas “Snacks” Lee, who had never appeared in a game during his college career prior to Monday. Jackson State head coach Wayne Brent gave Lee a jersey for his final home game, and Tigers fans began chanting “We want Snacks!” late in the game. With two minutes remaining and Jackson State up big, Brent called Lee’s number.
Lee missed his first three shots from three-point range, but he finally buried one from way beyond the arc with 35 seconds on the clock. The crowd went nuts.
Can it get any better than a student manager called “Snacks” drilling a three-pointer in the first and only game of his college career? That’s right up there with some of our best feel-good stories from throughout the years.
