Previously: Purdue & Minnesota (GRIII Edition)

Of course Spike Albrecht is familiar with the "Big Balls" dance that originated in the (terrible) sequel to a classic baseball movie before being popularized as a basketball celebration by Sam Cassell.

Huevos.

[Hit THE JUMP for the rest of the GIFs, featuring Nik Stauskas making Andrew Dakich do Andrew Dakich things, Jordan Morgan's old man strength, Jon Horford's zen calm, and much more.]

As usual, click the links/stills to open each GIF in a lightbox.

HONORABLE MENTION

Team manager attempts to join post-Purdue celebration, cannot. Caris LeVert steal, layup (and, uh, uncalled travel). GRIII transition block, LeVert outlet, Stauskas bomb. Caris LeVert, one-man fast break. Jordan Morgan and-one. Mitch McGary counts it. Spike Albrecht running scoop. Nik Stauskas explosive jab step. Stauskas corner three, bench grilling.

10. F***

Guy in B1G sweatervest isn't a Michigan fan, apparently.

9. Mister Fantastic Finds J-Mo

That pass isn't physically possible. It just isn't.

(Also, players wearing #23 are required to perform that tongue-wag after plays of such absurdity.)

8. Spike Meets Wall

Rarely do you see the exact moment a player realizes he's never going to hear the end of a certain play in the film room. So close, Spike. So close.

7. The Stauskas/Dakich Connection, A Three-Act Play

Act One: The Head-Bob

Act Two: Crane Style

Act Three: I Have No F'n Clue

We have three more years of Andrew Dakich. Cherish them.

6. OLD MAN STRENGTH

This ball bounced onto Jordan Morgan's front lawn and is therefore his property. Kindly step off, please.

5. Rule #2: Double Tap

Just like Tallahassee taught him.

4. RICHARD PITINO

Spittle-flecked tantrum:

Being summoned back to Planet Carmex:

Big Ten coaches are easily the country's most GIF-friendly.

3. WIN THE GAME, COACH'S ORDERS

Yes, this already got its own post. No, I don't care.

2. Jon Horford, Zen Master

Glenn Robinson III wins the game, Jon Horford ponders the meaning of the Shōdōka,

FRAMES OF THE GAMES: HUEVOS

Call me juvenile, but this was a no-brainer.

I like the Stauskus jab step for this one.

 

My brain wants to convince my eyes that #9 has to have been a fortuitous block right into JMo's hands rather than a pass...

but I really liked the honorable mention Robinson block/Stauskas three. During the game that got two huge crowd cheers. One on each end. Loved it.

That Jon Horford is the Dalai Lama .gif is just brilliant. He must do like 7 hours of yoga a day to be that zen about things literally all the time.
