So they get a pay day.
Jermaine Crumpton from Canisius hit the winning free throw for the MAAC in their 21-17 win over the Summit League. They lost in their second pool-play game, 21-18, to Northeast.
The inaugural event features 32 teams of graduating college seniors playing in a three-on-three tournament with the first team to 21 earning the win. Each team, which has four players, earns $1,000 for each pool play win.
