Within seconds of Glenn Robinson III's tip-slam on Wednesday night, @pnbloem (BlockM around these parts) recognized some serious gif potential:

I'm here to serve:

[For the rest of the Nebraska game in gifs, with a heavy emphasis on Mitch McGary and the NCAA's foremost attention-starved refs, hit THE JUMP.]

As always, click the still to open the animated gif in a lightbox.

In a sign of the times, the above wasn't even Robinson's most impressive dunk, because this is just effortless elevation:

And now begins the Big Puppy Show. McGary blocks, forcefully enough to knock the shooter to the floor:

McGary has a tender moment with TV Ted Valentine:

McGary enters the fray with aplomb, emerges with favorite chew toy...

Ed Hightower does Ed Hightower things; Nik Stauskas reacts with the requisite disgust:

Speaking of Stauskas, your latest edition of "Three-Point Specialist":

Finally, Taylor Lewan shows off his, er, unique conducting technique:

great GREAT gifs this week from an otherwise somewhat ugly game.

Lewan conducting is one of my all-time favorites and will become "celebration" gif posting material for me.

GRIII's second dunk is, remarkably, even better than his first.  He actually jumped *too* far.  he could have started at least a couple feet back.

McGary playing DE while going for the loose ball, and hyping up the crowd.

Stauskas with the behind-the-back double crossover.  Nasty!

This .gif series has become my favorite addition to the board as well.
