GoFundMe spokeswoman Aja Shepherd said the Bain family site was the second-most popular campaign Wednesday - surpassed only by one for victims of an natural disaster in Albania that had killed at least 30 and injured more than 650 - with more than 1,500 donors from all 50 states giving an average of $36.
Filled with emotion, Bain spoke to reporters following the historic upset and choked back tears as he mentioned the devastation his family and home country have been facing since Dorian tore it apart a couple of months ago.
Barnwell says Bain's inspiration comes from his family and that his game-winning, buzzer-beating shot is proof that a moment can shift anyone's life around. They were 5-1 heading into Tuesday night's game. "I could feel the dude on my back, and I just prayed it [would] go in".
Bain's family in Freeport, Bahamas lost "nearly everything of value" and the church run by his father, a minister, sustained "extreme damage" in the Category 5 storm that hammered the islands, according to the website set up by the school two weeks after the storm.
Donations have been piling in for Bain's family after Stephen F. Austin's win went final. That's what many people were asking when the news flashed across their Twitter timelines the Duke Blue Devils suffered a rare home loss to an unranked and relatively unheard of Lumberjacks team.
