The Law of Gus is real and was in full effect Wednesday night. Calling Wednesday night's matchup between Ohio State and Northwestern on the Big Ten Network, Gus Johnson was given every opportunity to lose his mind, especially at the end of the game. Back-and-forth action left Gus breathless, and resulted in a two-point Ohio State win.
Ohio State held a three-point lead with under 20 seconds to go as Northwestern tried to pull the upset on its home floor. On one end of the court, there was Alex Marcotullio, attempting to play spoiler with an NBA three from way downtown. And the Gusgasm was on.
After a few moments for Gus to catch his breath, Ohio State took possession out of a timeout. And just as quickly as it looked like Northwestern might have a shot to pull the upset, it was over. Jared Sullinger's quick turnaround jumper put Ohio State up two, and Northwestern's heave at the buzzer was off the mark.
Just a Wednesday night on the Big Ten Network that feels like March Madness.
