With the score tied at 20 in the first half of a Big Ten tournament quarterfinal game against Nebraska, Aaron Craft finds Sam Thompson cutting on the baseline, which, naturally, leads to another slam-and-one play from Thompson.

Cornhusker coach Tim Miles saw it coming, as he frantically tried to get the attention of forward (and soon-to-be-victim) Walter Pitchford. As did that dude gunning for a trillion at the end of the bench.

Didn't matter.

SAM THOMPSON KILLT 'EM

Thompson would make the free throw to give Ohio State a 23-20 lead, but that quickly evaporated, thanks to a 37-10 Nebraska run to build an 18-point lead for the Huskers. Then the real magic happened.
