Jared Jeffries played 11 years in the NBA. He was a first-round draft pick after a college career with the Indiana Hoosiers that saw him win the 2002 Big Ten Player of the Year award. But on Monday, he added something that many other NBA players don't have in their trophy case: "The Price is Right" winner.
Appearing on an episode of the iconic 50-year-old game show, Jeffries won, as former announcer Bob Barker would say, "a neewwwww car!"
Jeffries, who played in the NBA with the Washington Wizards, Houston Rockets, Portland Trail Blazers and New York Knicks, was playing a game called "One Away." According to "The Price is Right" website, the terms of the game are described as: "A wrong price for a car is shown. Each correct digit is one away from each of the wrong digits. The contestant attempts to form the price of the car. The contestant is then told how many digits are correct, and if at least one is correct, is given a second and final chance to form the price of the car."
And that's what Jeffries did, winning a Toyota sedan.
