GIF: Sam Thompson Dunks on Purdue's Dreams

By Jason Priestas on March 13, 2014 at 4:33p

Purdue hung around Thursday's game with Ohio State in the Big Ten tournament for much longer than most expected, leading 51-50 at the under eight timeout, but the Buckeyes, thanks to plays like this Aaron Craft to Sam Thompson alley-oop, closed the deal late.

The bench reaction is just the best.

Ohio State will face No. 4 Nebraska at 2:30-ish p.m. Friday on ESPN.

beautiful play...  tough game, though.

The strong will stand, the weak will fall by the wayside.  100% and then some!

Dear Eleven Warriors staffers,

Please compile an anthology of Slam Thompson's dunks. It'd be a wonderful gif(t) to present on his Senior Day next year.

If I've mastered The Thurmanator, I think I could handle 40GB of Slams.

Impressive.  Burger owned me.  I'm due to try again, at least then I can attribute the 15-20lbs I've gained since then to "training".

Dairy-fed intellect and pure, unhinged sass.

It's a battle of your mind more than a battle with your appetite. Best of luck to you on your quest, Sir Knight.

Love Thurman's. Wayyyy smaller than I envisioned. I ripped a dollar off the wall that said something about the sec owning college football. (Didn't steal it left it on floor) B-1-G! B-1-G! B-1-G!

Just string it a long and do a count down for march madness or every game day

Dude has major ups, if his arms were a few inches shorter he doesn't do that. Never realize how long his arms were. 


Like the ball in the stands, we balls out

Love the GIF - didnt notice the bench till Jason pointed it out.  Who is that beast that chucks Amedeo across the floor?  It looks like Amedeo is trying to draw a charge call.

Sheesh.... ADV almost gets slammed to the ground by someone... Think it might be Kam Williams.


Oh and the dunk is pretty cool too.

And when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of boooooooooze!! And we'll drink to old Ohio 'till we wobble in our shoes.

Delle Valle looks like he got punched out there at the end when the bench went crazy!
