WATCH: Basketball Player With Down Syndrome Wins Game for Team

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 02/20/16

They call him "Money Robert," and he comes through with only three seconds on the clock

Robert Lewis has Down syndrome and has served as his team’s manager since he started high school. At a basketball game on Senior Night, his coach decided to let him get into the game. Once on the court, he was guarded by his own brother, who plays on the opposing team. With only a few seconds left, “Money Robert” —  as everyone calls him — had one more chance to score for this team. He went for a 3-point shot and won the game. Basketball fans from both sides of the court went wild.
