Mac McClung Fucking Rules

All things considered this was one of the best, funniest and downright awesome endings all wrapped into one and it's all thanks to Mac McClung. The man threw a pass to himself off the backboard with 1:20 to go in a 4 point game against a top-5 team. Not only that, it was the CORRECT play and it worked. I say it was the correct play because he got himself stuck in the air and is an athletic freak to where he just went, yep, this is a smart decision. And it worked. We can debate the foul call, he still hit the free throws therefore the ball told the truth. And then after one of the worst inbounds passes you'll see: 

And then another shitty Texas offensive possession, we got Mac magic. And here's the best part. Chris Beard let him do it. He didn't call timeout. Too many times in the college games coaches call timeout to draw up some play that eventually gets busted and players go ISO or panic when the first and second read aren't there. Beard trusted his dude to go make a play and he drilled a jumper. Fucking love it, it's why Chris Beard has a legit case as the best coach in the game right now. 

Then he just straight up dips out of his postgame press conference with Fran Fraschilla to go party in the locker room. The dude fucking rules. Obviously we all knew him coming out of high school when he broke Iverson's scoring record in Virginia and was known as Riff Raff's cousin who could do shit like this: 

Then he transfers from Georgetown, becomes eligible right before the season starts at Texas Tech and is their most valuable player offensively. It's what Tech has when they are good. A great defense, a decent offense but really a guy who can go get a bucket. He's not at the level of a Jarrett Culver or Keenan Evans yet in the system, but he's clearly a dude who can score. 

Again, this was done against a top-4 team in Texas. Not even just that. They were ROLLING Texas Tech. They were up 10 at half. They scored 48 points in the first half. Let me repeat, Texas, which is known for always being awful on offense under Shaka Smart, scored 48 points in a half against Texas Tech's defense. But then they sort of stopped attacking, their guards got lazy on offense, settling for jumpers instead of getting downhill on ball screens. Then Mac took over. 

College basketball fucking rules. Mac McClung fucking rules.
