Lee, a former student Provine High School student, has worked with the men’s basketball team for four years.

He was able to dress for senior night and was honored before the game for his dedication and hard work with the team.

He wore #35 for his favorite basketball player Kevin Durant and was put in the game with two minutes left on the clock.

When asked how it felt to make this epic shot, “Snacks” said, “KD has always been my favorite player. It made me feel like the ‘Easy Money (3-point) Sniper’ when I made it.”

Durant saw the viral 3-pointer and tweeted in response to it.

The seniors ended their home career with a 76-56 victory over University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff.

Towards the end of their final game of the season, the crowd began roaring “WE WANT SNACKS.”

He and the Tigers have now won two straight games, improving to 12-17 overall and 9-7 in SWAC play.

Jackson State will return to the court Thursday for a conference match up on the road versus Alabama A&M in Huntsville, Ala. beginning at 7:30 p.m.
