BATON ROUGE - One LSU student came away from half of Wednesday night's LSU men's basketball upset of No. 17 Missouri $500 richer.

TJ Stroud from the Houston area survived the LSU Basketball version of musical chairs to be the last contestant among an original six left and then swished a three-point shot for the cash.

Stroud joined several other winners this season from the LSU Student Section, known as the "Roar Corps" and there will be more halftime competitions throughout the remainder of the regular season.

The Tigers next play at home on Wednesday at 7 p.m. against Vanderbilt. There are five home dates remaining in the regular season and LSU Students are admitted free of charge with valid ID. Also the LSU Student Lounge is open with food and drink prior to each remaining home game.
