Tonight Gus Johnson was in Evanston for Ohio State-Northwestern on Big Ten Network. Up until tonight, we hadn't really experienced the pleasure of a classic Gus Johnson finish, but the Buckeyes and Wildcats finally delivered. Ohio State led by double digits, but a frantic Northwestern fightback found them down just three in the closing seconds after two Ohio State turnovers. That's when Alex Marcotulio let fly for our first real classic Law of Gus finish of the college basketball season. OOOOHHHH!!!!!...
After the tying three, Ohio State got the ball back with a chance to win the game after attempting to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. That's when Aaron Craft and Jared Sullinger delivered before John Shurna's halfcourt attempt bounced off the front rim. Gus' call of Sullinger's shot isn't quite as excited as the Marcotulio three, but there's only so much you can do with a lay up off the glass. If Shurna's miraculous shot had gone in, they might still be cleaning Gus' vital organs off the Northwestern floor...
March Madness just isn't going to be the same without Gus Johnson. For this year, we'll have to settle for a little Leap Day Gus Johnson Madness in the Big Ten.
