Stephen F. Austin Hero Nathan Bain's Family Nearly Lost Everything During Hurricane Dorian

Nathan Bain hit an improbable buzzer-beating layup to shock Duke on Tuesday night as Stephen F. Austin became the first non-conference team to win at Cameron Indoor Stadium since 2000.

An unranked opponent beating #1 Duke at Duke is incredible on it's own, but Bain has been through an incredible hardship this year. Bain's family lost most of their material possessions in September during Hurricane Dorian. Via KTRE:

“The church got hit really hard,” Bain said. “My house got hit really hard. We lost just about everything. We are still trying to stay positive because more important then the material things, everyone in our circle and immediate family and church family is safe.”

Bain, a senior, is averaging just four points a game this season. Tonight, in the biggest win in Stephen F. Austin history, he scored 11 on five of seven shooting to go along with 5 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals.
