So apparently Ohio State has a flair for the dramatic. In its third-round matchup against Iowa State, Aaron Craft hit a three-pointer at the buzzer to put away the Cyclones.
Tonight in the Sweet 16, Craft was playing the role of distributor — on the Buckeyes’ last possession, he dished the ball to LaQuinton Ross, who was way behind the three-point arc — but that didn’t stop him from firing.
Here’s the video:
Wow!!!!! Gotta catch my breath!!!! My boys are going nuts!!! Ross for 33333333!!!!! Yes!!!! Elite 8 here we come!!!!

This shouldn't be ho-hum material, but for fans of the Big Ten who've been paying attention all season long the art of the late game/buzzer beating three-pointer is becoming just that. Last weekend it was Aaron Craft hitting a game winner with 0.5 seconds on the clock to beat Iowa State and advance to the Sweet 16.
Don't worry Aaron, you're shot was good...
No, the Mamba didn't crash the Big Dance. But Ohio State hero
LaQuinton Ross did channel Kobe's clutch gene. Impossible? Not for
I had a feeling the shot was going to be huge. LaQuinton Ross just cemented himself as not only a future, but a current Ohio State star.
Here is the best video I can find (for now) on THE shot:

Last Sunday Aaron Craft hit a game winning three point shot to give the Buckeyes the win. This time it was LaQuinton Ross’s turn. With Ohio State and Arizona tied at 70, Craft found Ross off a pick and roll and Ross buried the three pointer.
The three gave the Buckeyes the 73-70 lead with 2.4 seconds left, and the Buckeyes held on.

Sophomore forward LaQuinton Ross swished a long three with 2.1 seconds remaining to give second-seeded Ohio State a 73-70 victory Thursday night over sixth seed Arizona and send the Buckeyes to the Elite Eight. Deshaun Thomas led OSU with 20 points, including 16 in the first half, while Ross added 17.
The best game from last night's slew of 2013 NCAA men's basketball tournament came between Ohio State and the University of Arizona.

HOLY HELL, that game last night was insane! LaQuinton Ross was a BOSS last night hitting that game winner, I jumped out of my chair and spilled Oberon on myself because of it and I wasn’t mad about it at all. Although, that first half was one that I was not happy with the way the boys played or the officiating. But the second half the team that we know and love showed up, with...
Aaron Craft has a lot of the characteristics that former Duke guards J.J. Redick, Jon Scheyer, Greg Paulus, Steve Wojciechowski and Chris Collins exhibited. He’s a scrappy white guard who isn’t the biggest, strongest, fastest or most talented player, but he does what it takes to will his team to win. Some appreciate them. Others find them incredibly annoying. ESPN’s Rick...
At this point in the tournament unless you are a fan of one of the teams in the game you are likely hoping to just see a good game. Blowouts are dull, but expected early on. When it comes time for the Sweet 16 there should be no cakewalks, right (right Indiana? Miami?)?
Fans got a good one in the Ohio State/Arizona game Thursday night. The game was fairly close throughout the...
I still can’t belive what I saw at the end of Ohio States’ game against Iowa State. You could have told me that Aaron Craft would step up at the end of the game to make a big shot. However if you told me that shot would be a 3 pointer after he had waived off the leading scorer in the Big Ten (Deshaun Thomas). I woukd have said, “My boy Aaron Craft must have been feeling...
