For the second time in as many games, Ohio State went into the game's final seconds with the ball and the score tied. For the second time, they opted not to get the ball to DeShaun Thomas, who had been leading the way with 20 points. And for the second time, a Buckeye drained a three, with Ohio State moving past Arizona 73-70 on LaQuinton Ross' jumper with a few seconds left.
At Ohio State blog Land-Grant Holy Land, the most fun was being had in the comments section:
It's also pretty fun to scroll through their game thread and find the exact moment when Ross' jumper connected and the Dave Chappelle references that follow. LGHL also had the requisite video of Ross' cold-blooded jumper, as well as a .GIF of the 26-footer.
The tone was understandably more somber over at AZ Desert Swarm.
The Buckeyes are really the last team standing in the topsy-turvy West region. They face Wichita State Saturday with a bid to the Final Four on the line.
