Ellington’s Game Winner

A few quick notes from the video:

  • If Clemson wants to blame someone on that play, blame Cliff Hammonds who is clearly assigned to guard Ellington but for some reason decides to stay in the lane and guard the ACC logo on the floor below the FT line.  Either than or he thought Lawson was going to somehow get past James Mays and Raymond Sykes with three seconds left to get a shot off.
  • Roy thinks the game is over and actually heads down the sideline to shake Oliver Purnell’s hand before realizing there is  0.4 seconds left and returning to the coaches box before he is found in violation of the NCAA’s most recent holy tenet.  The funniest part is Roy who is on record as someone who does not do “cool” doing a little fist bump with assistant coach Joe Holliday.
  • If you watch the UNC bench you will see Bobby Frasor in a suit near the end fall over the chairs as he is doing a fist pump.  I hope he did not do further damage to the knee in the process.
  • Also on the bench, nice restraint by the players of not getting the floor and possibly drawing a technical.

    Been in Bobby’s shoes with the ruptured ACL. What happens is the pain usually disappears in a day or so, and you can “forget” that you are a ligament short. Then you do something, like pump your fist hard, and all of a sudden your leg turns to jelly! It doesn’t hurt, but it definitely takes some getting used to.

    Hahahaha, Bobby just collapsed with the force of his fist pump. I love it!

  3. Andy in Omaha says:

    Roy’s reaction looked like the play was entirely drawn up for Ellington to take the final shot. It was almost like “I knew he was gonna hit it.”

  4. Josh Bowling says:

    I don”t understand your sentiments Wilson.

  5. Wilson says:

    I just meant it was funny to see him get so into it that he took himself into the bench. I’m sure he would laugh about it. Not poking fun at his injury or anything.

    In the Southwest, he is known as El Smoothington

  7. Josh Bowling says:

    Sorry Wilson, I thought maybe you might be jumping ship on us. How stupid of me, no one would ever do that, and even if you wanted to, Tyler’s will is too strong and wouldn’t allow it to happen.

  8. […] an early look at the UNCA game. I’ll have more on that tomorrows. John and Ken enjoyed the Clemson game […]
