Nathan Bain is the name that will go down in college basketball history has the player who hit the game-winning layup that helped Stephen F. Austin pull off an all-timer of an upset over No. 1 Duke on Tuesday night.
It also brought attention to Bain and his family.
Back in September, Hurricane Dorian made landfall in the Bahamas and mostly destroyed a church where his father was a minister. The Bain family home was also hit hard.
Per SI.com, Stephen F. Austin's compliance office helped set up a GoFundMe page, and since Bain's layup, donations have rolled in to push the total raised to almost $40,000 as of 11:30 a.m. ET:
From the GoFundMe page:
"On September 1, 2019, Hurricane Dorian made landfall in The Bahamas as a category five storm. Among the almost 400,000 individuals affected by one of the most catastrophic natural disasters recorded in history was the family of SFA men's basketball senior Nate Bain. Not only did the Bain family see nearly everything of value destroyed by Hurricane Dorian, Bain's father- a minister- watched as his church suffered extreme damage from the storm as well."
In an effort to assist the Bain family's recovery from the worst natural disaster in the country's history, SFA Athletics is accepting donations of all dollar amounts which will be sent directly to Bain's family.
