Cliff Tucker's game-winning shot: the video
"Maryland's first win on a last-second shot since Drew Nicholas' Forever Moment against UNCW in the 2003 NCAA tournament," Patrick Stevens wrote moments after Cliff Tucker hit a real Buckhantz Dagger against Georgia Tech Saturday afternoon. Maybe it didn't have the significance of the Nicholas shot, but people who were there won't ever forget it, barring a tragic mishap in which their memories are erased.
There just aren't many moments in sports that can top a go-ahead last-second near-impossible three-pointer. And when you add in the fact that Greivis Vasquez had just hit an even more impossible last-second go-ahead three-pointer, only to have it wiped out by a timeout...yeah, this was one people will remember.
Above is the Raycom call. Below is Chick Hernandez's CSN report, with Tucker and teammates reacting to the shot and the post-shot madness.
And since Chick always brings the goods, here were some of the money quotes, concerning the post-shot running-around-in-circles bedlam, which also is hard to beat.
"I was running my hardest, I've never seen him run that hard in practice or any time," Dino Gregory said.
"That was the fastest I've ever seen him run," Eric Hayes
Chick Hernandez said.
"I just kept running around, I didn't know where to go," Tucker said. "Just hoping somebody grabbed me and stopped me, because I would have gotten tired eventually."
