Wikipedia — who hasn’t used it to find out information in the past?

Problem is, using it to get through classwork isn’t exactly a reliable source. It apparently was enough for former Duke basketball player, Justice Winslow, to not only make it in to Duke, but stay eligible for that one year on the Durham campus.

Winslow helped to lead Duke to a national championship victory over the Wisconsin Badgers this past season, but it apparently was the online open-sourced encyclopedia that got him as far as it was going to take him.

Following the season, Winslow left the school for the NBA and is currently a member of the Miami Heat. He is averaging six points and five rebounds per game for the Heat this season.

Given his reliance on Wikipedia to get him through school, it was probably the wise decision to head off campus and to the millions of the NBA. It wouldn’t have been long before Wikipedia wouldn’t have been enough to get him a degree.
