Nathan Bain was the hero of Stephen F. Austin’s upset of Duke, and he needs your help.
Bain is a native of Freeport, Bahamas, which was hit hard by Hurricane Dorian earlier this year. Bain’s father is a minister and his church was nearly destroyed by the storm, as was his family’s home. After he made a layup at the buzzer to beat No. 1 Duke at home — the biggest upset in college basketball in 15 years — Bain struggled to keep his emotions in check in the postgame interview.

Stephen F. Austin’s compliance office set up a GoFundMe for Bain and his family earlier this year. Before last night’s win, it had raised just over $2,000. This morning, it’s over $33,000, with donations flying in from fans who want to help the guy that took the Blue Devils down. The comments are priceless:
You beat those clowns. It’s the least I could do.
Happy Thanksgiving from UConn Nation
You blew up the Death Star tonight, Nate!
Thank you Sincerely, America
Thank you for taking the heat off us in Lexington. Prayers for your family.
A great story just got even better. Sports, man.
