Last night, Maryland and Miami played in a basketball game. It was not a good basketball game.
How not good of a basketball game was it? At the half, Miami led 19-14. By game’s end, the two teams had combined to go 40-120 from the field, and 13-31 from the free throw line.
So why discuss it here and now? Because with just seconds left in the second half, Miami’s Trey McKinney Jones had a chance to put this terrible basketball game away with a big dunk. Instead, this happened:
Here’s the dunk attempt, isolated.
And here’s the reaction from Miami mascot Sebastian the Ibis.
