This poor Utah fan who hit a half court shot for $5,000 during the Utah vs. Eastern Washington on Friday night can't collect his money from the bank because he's 17 years-old...

Then why did they let him participate?

Give him a 5k savings bond.

It turns out that it is the school, not the bank. They have gotten so much negative publicity that they are going to meet with him on Monday to "Try and work something out". There is no working something out to me. Give the boy his money.

Univ of Utah is not run or related to the LDS church. Nothing to do with it at all. Pay him, he earned it.

They should put it in an account until he is 18. 5k is chump change for a bank.

These sponsors, especially when they're banks, look for any angle they can to get out of paying off on these promotions. One of the local banks had a promo years ago where if an LSU baseball player hit a grand slam, the lucky number holder would win $10k. Lo and behold, it happened and the bank tried to welch on the deal. The guy had to sue the bank to get his money.

The bank will owe more than 5k in bad PR if they don't make it right.

Genius, only let ineligible participants compete and never owe a sense. These promotion scammers deserve a good kick to the groin.
