Hard work really does pay off.

In a showdown of Top 25 teams on Tuesday night, Kansas guard Wayne Selden made one of the plays of the day thanks to a great effort. 

The freshman jumped over the scorer's table and into the crowd in order to save a loose ball against Baylor. He was rewarded for his effort. The ball went right to teammate Joel Embiid, who turned it into two points. 

Here's a great look at the play courtesy of ESPN.com:

The Jayhawks faithful certainly appreciated the effort from the youngster.
