The Rutgers basketball team, which beat No. 4 Wisconsin 67-62, wasn’t the only big winner at The RAC Sunday evening. Fan Gus Stanzione participated in a contest during a timeout early in the second half of Sunday’s game, and his shooting ability earned Stanzione multiple prizes.

Stanzione made a layup, a free throw and a half-court shot within the 30 seconds he was allotted, winning a new set of tires (layup), free oil changes for a year (free throw) and a $2,500 gift card to STS Tire & Auto Centers (half-court shot). Stanzione needed a total of four shots to complete the contest, with his lone miss coming on the first half-court shot attempt.

Maybe Gus’ shooting rubbed off on the Scarlet Knights, who shot 66.7% from the field in the second half.
