GIFs: The Q-Bomb

Despite scoring 11 of his team's 14 points down the stretch, LaQuinton Ross had just committed a foul his team couldn't afford. Arizona's Nick Lyons drove the baseline for layup and was fouled by Ross on the way up. The basket would count and Lyons would tie the game from the line.

After taking the inbound with 21 seconds remaining, Aaron Craft slowly dribbled up the court, watching precious seconds tick off. With six seconds left, Ross set for a screen, but both defenders – conscious of his heroics against Iowa State in the round of 32 – went with Craft, leaving Ross open from 24-feet out.

Ross took it from there.

It's.... it's beautiful. Majestic. Laquinton Boss-tastic. Diebler-esque.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

What makes it even more beautiful is Craft's lack of reaction, except for a knowing fist pump.  He instinctively knew where to send it.  Incredible. Absolutely. Incredible.

Craft is loving it. He knew it from the jump. 

How firm thy friendship..

I think you may be right. Craft has that look of confidence after the pass. Wasn't worried too much about a rebound.

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.

I yelled louder this time than I did with Craft's three. Next time, my neighbors are going to call the cops.

What an incredibly huge shot on such a big stage!  LaQ has arrived and it's great to see the confidence just spewing out all over the court.  The kid can shoot from anywhere and take it to the rack.  Frickin love watching that shot over and over and over and over and over and over!!!  Go Buckeyes!

The crowd was particularly impressive, considering all week we heard about 'Zona's "home game". Fuck yes alumnis, way to travel!

Dammit fat fingered ya.

Menexenus's picture

They should put the down arrow farther away from the up arrow on the screen to help avoid these all-too-frequent "fat finger" incidents.

Real fans stay for Carmen.

Even a quarter of an inch would do it.

Especially love watching the OSU crowd jump up all at once just as the ball goes through the net.

Smooth Playa! LaQuinton is so smooooooth. All game long I was saying to my buddy this kid when he is on is so good and so smoooooooooth it's unreal! Go Bucks beat Wichita State and beat scUM. My dream goes like this here on out.... tOSU beating Florida in the NC Game here in Atlanta 6 years later AND THEN UFM leading tOSU Buckeyes to beat an SEC team out in OUR ROSE BOWL Next January! It started 6 years ago and I was there in Glendale watching Troy take it on the chin and then 3 months later Oden, Connley and the boys lost to Florida here in Atlanta for the NC.
That's what I call B1G  justice!!!!! F*ck the SEC!!!!!

Because they wouldn't let me go for 3!

I hope LaQuinton Ross doesn't turn into LaQuittin' Ross

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

That shot was just so pure. No other way to describe it. Such an emotionally taxing game. 3 more!

Watching Deshaun in the post game interview with Len Elmore was hilarious.

"Actually, I'm a junior."-Best part of the interview.

Q's Drives to the hoop where I thought he got fouled on a few awesome layups was just awesome.  We missed and made many layups and the way the game was being officiated I kept waiting for the whistle, but many times I never heard it.

beat part about the gif?
craft's little fist pump.  dude is just cooooold...

KJR10's picture

Best part for me was Q's big old smile. You can tell he was really enjoying himself, as he should be.

millertime2011's picture

Anyone have a video of deshaun's postgame interview? I didn't get to see it because I was too busy reviving myself. 

bukyze's picture

The immediate interview I saw was with Len Elmore.  Elmore the dipshit said something to the effect of  'how does this game feeling knowing that you're a senior?'.  Deshaun just laughed and told Len he was a junior.  Deshaun was all smiles as usual!

Third gif of the jumping celebration needs to be 2 seconds longer -- ADV tries to be cool but Qlutch denies him the chance.  I watched that one a few times on the DVR and had a good laugh.
