Tonight University of Dubuque assistant women’s basketball coach Justin Smith and wife Casey Smith, the head girl’ basketball coach at Hempstead will be seen on national television. Justin will be a contestant on the Fox Network game show “Spin the Wheel”, while Casey will be a part of the decision making process.
The show selects contestants based on an act of heroism they’ve performed and contestants get the chance to answer trivia and spin the wheel for a chance at millions of dollars.
Smith received much local and national attention in 2018 after taking control of the U-D team bus after the driver suffered a medical issue during the teams return trip home from a tournament out of state in late December 2017. Smith safely guided the bus to a stop on the interstate. He has received numerous honors for the heroic act.
The show will air tonight on Fox at 8 o’clock.
