Between game-winners, Showtime-esque fast breaks, the alley-oop bonanza, and the many other plays of note from Purdue and Minnesota, OFAAT is split into two parts. Part one belongs to Glenn Robinson III.

Glenn Robinson's alley-oop finish over two Minnesota players elicited reactions normally reserved for Cirque du Soleil, the Top Thrill Dragster, or the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The above screencaps come from one replay of GRIII's slam. So does this:
The man on the left reacts to this spectacular feat with a golf clap. The woman on the right is... dead? Even her reserved husband(?) appears concerned:
"Honey? Honey? ... Well, it was a hell of a way to go."
Keep this clearly deceased woman in your thoughts as you watch GRIII inflict pain and suffering upon all who dare cross his path, after the jump.
[JUMP, but not as high as GRIII or your knees will literally explode into a confetti of ligaments and bone shards.]

8. Showtime Ann Arbor
It's for the best that Robinson couldn't quite dunk this, because there'd be another job opening at MGoBlog while I waited at the River Styx with Purple Shirt Lady.
7. Boxouts Don't Exist 11 Feet in the Air
I'd be pleased with myself, too.
6. One-Man Fast Break Defense
Well, Andre Hollins, you tried. You even jumped first and managed to shield the defender with your body. It's not your fault said defender is made of Flubber.
5. Just Gonna Hang Up Here For a While
His head didn't even come that close to hitting the backboard. WEAK. [/watches 47 more times]
4. Even His Handshakes Are Spectacular
This is spellbinding.
3. Fast Break Blouses
The integrity of the backboard has been compromised. "Blouses" hang, reverse angle:
Full play wsg Andrew Dakich:
Pretty sure Dakich is attempting astral projection.
Tiger Woodsian reaction from GRIII. Replay angle with Caris LeVert's absurd baseball pass:
The Paint Crew. Oh man, The Paint Crew.
Extra schadenfreude points for the "DEFENSE LIVES HERE" sign.
Still waiting on that offer, Purdue.
FRAMES OF THE GAMES: EAT MY SHORTS
I be like dang.
I be like daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaang.
I be like dang, Charles Buggs, that's not the optimal view of that dunk.
