Garza just doesn't look the same these past few games. They need to set up a play for him to get his confidence back.

jNW is shooting well. Odds are they can't keep it up for an entire game. Just keep attacking the inside and pass out of any double team to the open shooter.

That stolen inbounds for a missed open break layup is pretty indicative of the kind of game this has been for pretty much the whole team.

I feel sorry for people who turned this game off (though I don't fault them).  That was nuts.

Team learning how to win and deal with adversity.  This is what they were missing last year.  Will serve them well once March rolls around.

I admit to turning away with about 4 mins left. I checked back in at 3 minutes, saw us turn it over, and checked out again. Fortunately, I came back with exactly 3 secs left. So I missed some heroics, but I saw Jordan's next highlight destined for the "Titanic treatment".

Lo, bring forth the Bohannon Cannon. "Fire!" Fran shouted. And lo, it was done and they smote jNW's ruin on CHA's battlefield.

I started taking shots of crown royal apple when jbo missed the layup. We won and now I’m shitfaced. Work is gonna suck tomorrow but at least we got the W. I’ve never been so pissed off and so happy in 45 seconds since I lost my virginity when my first girlfriend said no and then ok.

We did not deserve to win this game.  But, a win is a win and I'll take it.  And to paraphrase Little John: JBo has balls of solid rock.  GO HAWKS!!!

The ugliest win is better than the prettiest loss. Just wish we didn't try to test that theory quite so often.

No complaining allowed! You are never seeing that again! Full enjoyment required!

I've rewatched JBo's shot 25+ times now. Each and every time I'm absolutely certain that there's no way it could possibly go in. And I am STILL convinced that it shouldn't. But, it only has to be good the one time.

That's why you're the judge and I'm the law-talking guy.

Somebody have a link where I can watch it 25 times myself?

Christian Laettner is yet to repeat that shot against Kentucky...

Christian Laettner hadn't spent the first 35+ minutes of that game sucking it up. He was literally perfect that entire game. And his shot was nowhere near as far away as JBo's was.

Christian Laettner stepped on that dude, though.

In the standings, this win is just as impressive as the one over Michigan.

Go Hawks!

Yes, I understand that. Hence the whole ugliest win being greater than any loss thing.

Damn right - no such thing as a good loss or a moral loss.

This reminds me of a game back in the early 70's where we were 11 points down with very little time to go and won it. You do not forget these kinds of games. Ever.

(edit) It was against Illinois.
