The best photo from the Kansas game

Written by Kyle Porter


This is the Marcus Smart 70-footer that would have brought down the city.

I’ve been sitting here just staring at it for like 20 minutes.

From guy right below the rim to the right to Justin Blackmon (bottom left just above the cheerleaders) to Kansas bro scared out of his mind on the far right to heaving girl in the bright orange pants right behind Markel jersey dude to Clint Chelf and J.W. Walsh doing the Tiger “my drive is fading hard” lean just above the top left of the scoreboard…

…it really has it all.

Here’s the shot from behind.

  • Manda

    I also love the photographer who doesn’t even have her camera up ready to capture the shot!!

  • Jheri Curl

    That is a cool photo. Never noticed before but those male cheerleaders outfits are HORRENDOUS, yikes!!!

  • Meredyth Jones

    I just realized that I held my breath the entire time I was looking at this.

  • I like how one guy looks like Indiana Jones right above the shot clock

    • Jheri Curl

      Nice Fedora. Used to have one just like it in gray.

  • Scott

    i think this is the only pic i saw from that night where Blackmon is visible
