MoneyballBlog

Red Wing area students will have a chance during the 2015-2016 high school basketball season to earn prizes with Merchants Bank’s Money Ball.

Money Ball will be offered at two boy’s games: December 11 vs. Mankato West and February 6 vs. Austin. Money Ball will also be offered at two girl’s games: January 22 vs. Rochester Century and January 29 vs Albert Lea.

At each game, one student will be chosen at the 1st-5th grade level, and one student will be chosen at the 6th-12th grade level. Students will sign up before each game and be chosen before halftime.

For the 1st-5th graders, the chosen student will have one minute to try as many times as needed to make a lay-up and a free throw. The student must make the lay-up before attempting the free throw. If the student makes both the lay-up and free throw in the time allotted, the student will have one attempt at a three-point shot. The student wins $5 for a lay-up, $10 for a free throw and $25 for a three-pointer. If a three-pointer is not made, the money will roll over to the next game.
