God’s Shenanigans: Texas Is Moving On Because They Shot Two Late Air Balls
God: “Watch me screw with Arizona State on these last two possessions, you know, because of their nickname.”
When is an air ball good for your team? When it lands right in the lap of your largest player, who then lays it in at the buzzer to win the game. Cameron Ridley grabbed the brick, after a long 3-point attempt by Jonathan Holmes never even hit the rim, and put it back over the outstretched arm of ASU’s 7-foot-2 Jordan Bachynski to give Texas an 87-85 win.
Texas scored on a similar play on the previous possession when Jonathan Holmes grabbed an air ball by Javan Felix and converted a three-point play with 32 seconds left.

It was a painful win, however:

Gus Johnson is sitting at home calling all of these games to himself.
