In another one of Suspense's "stories taken from life," we meet Fred Hudson, the star player on the McKay College basketball team. He and his father think basketball will be his career, but his mother and his girlfriend can't see that far ahead. Fred's grades aren't good, but his history professor thinks he has potential as a history major.
Young Fred, who is caught in the middle of this confusion, is then approached by two men. They offer him a lot of money to throw the game. Fred needs the money, but will he do it?
