For the first time in three years, Bechard missed. Memphis Grizzlies guard and 2008 National Champion Mario Chalmers was next up for the $10,000 challenge, however he too narrowly missed on his half-court heave. Chalmers was welcomed home along with his Grizzlies teammates and fellow Jayhawks Ben McLemore and Wayne Selden Jr. Following the half-court challenge, the men’s basketball team performed a face-off style routine to finish off the dances for the night. Lil Yachty highlighted the night’s events with performances of five of his original songs and features. His performance lit up Allen Fieldhouse, literally with the fans using their cell phones to illuminate the 16,300-seat arena.
