Gif City: Plays of the Weekend (Part 1)
Another great weekend of hoops is in the books. There were a lot of things we didn’t expect to see. ACC after-thought Wake Forest upset #2 Miami by 15. A crowd of 35,000+ couldn’t stop Otto Porter in the Carrier Dome. Kentucky beat a solid Missouri team sans Nerlens Noel. A Michigan fan dressed a telly tubby. College basketball is unpredictable, and that is why we love it. Here are my favorite moments of this weekend. See plays #13-#8 here.
In case you don’t already know, this is Gif City- a place where I round up the day’s top plays in Gif form. Some of them are homemade, some are from around the web. This feature is not for those of you using a dial-up modem. Even if you have Google’s new fiber connection give the page a second to load, you patience will be rewarded. Watch them, enjoy them, send them to your friends. Have I been forGIFful and missed your favorite? Tweet me at @Brennan_Keller.

4. If you’re a basketball purist, this is a thing of beauty…All five players touch the ball before the shot goes up. Incredible ball movement.
