Get a load of THIS.
Utah State's waxing Idaho State at home Tuesday night. The game is nearly getting to the point where Aggies fans will break into the winning-team-losing-team chant, which is one of the best traditions in college basketball. But before they get to that, some necessary garbage time and occasional foul shots as the game comes to a close. Then, with 4:11 remaining, the Bengals' (really? Idaho State ... Bengals?) Kamil Gawrzydek goes to the line to shoot two.
From there, things get spooky. You've probably never seen anything like this.
High bounce of the back part of the iron, one quick, stubborn bounce on the front part of the tin, and then the ball it gets all Zack Morris on us in a real-life freeze frame. I love how a Utah State player nearly goes up to knock the orange from its perch, then the ball responds, as if to say, "Gotcha." Thanks to Jay Drew with the assist on the linkage to the video.
And by the by, the shot of the man in the Superman costume, who unsuccessfully attempts to will the ball away from the net, is Aggies superfan Wild Bill. I'm glad to see he's in good spirits and healthy enough to be back at games.
Utah State won, 71-48, to improve to 9-2. ISU is now 3-7 and remains winless on the road.
