Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Elite 8 Posbang!!
...and he didn't make the last free throw. BUT WHATEVER
Win and advance!
Also, he didn't ice it with the FT. Tennessee still had a shot to win. Even if he hit both, he wouldn't have iced anything other than ensuring we wouldn't lose in regulation.
would have still won it.
Expectation on the second free throw is close to meaningless, I think. Missing it makes it more difficult for Tennessee to score at all, but of course then if they do score they win on the spot. It probably doesn't matter much overall. I'd actually prefer to miss, personally, with 2.x seconds left on the clock and a 2 point lead.
Of course, if you want to miss, you may as well miss the first one, so obviously this wasn't the plan.
edit: no, actually, you should make the first, miss the second. This is because of the possibility that you rebound the miss and get fouled. Then you're up two shooting to make it a four point game. Therefore, Stauskas played those FTs perfectly. Go blue.
but I wil take it. GO BLUE!
He missed the second one but whatever POSBANG!
Whew! I'm gonna have a beverage and calm down.
for me. Too nervous to enjoy one during that 2nd half!
No POSbang. And I wish he would have made both free throws
was thinking the miss on the second was better. Doesn't let them get ready on the inbounds and means they can't move the ball up the court with a long pass before the clock starts.
Definitely. They'd have probably gotten a much better look off a made free throw.
But you want style points.
They scored more points than Tennessee. They won the game.
That's a fun new tradition, which I think is fun to see in late game timeouts. Thanks, Mitch!
Deserves a Gritty .gif
He's here for the Posbang!
didn't like it when I did that in the stock room.
that looks like the official gif of orgasms to me...highly appropriate after a big win.
but I used maize and blue for the colors...
Elite 8 feels great!
A win is a win. Bring on someone from the state of Kentucky.
Having...trouble...typing....my fingers are still trembling in fear. So happy/relieved to see Michigan back in the elite 8
Survive and advance
I lover everyone except those refs
My tv monitor took some serious verbal abuse when them refs didn't overturn that possession (so...freakin....obviously...off....of...tennessee...). I would've been scarred had we not won this one.
Lead by 15
Profit/Go to Elite 8!
(Not included--near heart attack!!!)
Bring on the Cats or Cards!
Man. That second half was controlled by the refs. How did they only have like 3 fouls till the end and we were in the bonus. O well. WE WON!
Even if you crawl across the finish line, you still crossed. Elite 8! Go Blue.
NOT perfect, but it works
what the hell was that near meltdown in the last 2 min?
Hell even sparty couldnt muck that up..
Bad gateway, FTW!
morgen die Welt.
So do we want UK or Louisville?
Bring them on!!
After shitting a brick that will require stitches, I am now ready to posbang the shit out of all of you!
have the balls to. Michigan by 2.
Never broke a sweat- knew the boys would pull it out.... GOD DAMMIT INBOUND THE BALL WTFOMG
This .gif is so much better when you position your screen to view simultaneously this and the post above with the team singing The Victors.
Need a stiff drink after that one! Where are my glycerin pills?
By the way, Derrick Walton should get himself a posbang for shooting perfect from the floor and coming up huge all game on the offensive end.
Take care of the ball, son.
