A former Eastern Wyoming College men's basketball player found himself in the Division I limelight on March 4.

Ty Larson, who played for the Lancers from 2017-19, is the head student-manager for the men's basketball team at Texas Tech, where he is set to graduate this spring. 

For the first time as a Red Raider, Larson suited up for the senior night game against Iowa State, and with 55 seconds remaining in the blowout, Larson entered the court. You can see Larson's moment in this video

Larson, who enjoyed mentions across sports media -- including ESPN -- tweeted his own reaction following the game:
