Ohio State Buckeyes basketball coach Thad Matta was very excited after the Buckeyes downed Iowa on a buzzer beating shot taken by none other than Aaron Craft. It was though the Buckeyes didn’t want the ball in anyone’s hands but Craft’s.

Craft who struggled throughout the game trying to make foul shots, didn’t seemed to be bothered by the fact he was off today. He went up just above the 3 point line and made the shot that would send the Buckeyes into the sweet 16.

There was no doubt in the way Craft shot the ball. He made it look easy and he only left .5 seconds on the clock. In his post game interview Matta was asked about the shot. That is when he said, they should build a statue of Craft and place it outside the building.

Craft has a habit of coming through in tough situations. He seems to be there when it counts the most. Before Craft sunk the 3 point shot the game was tied at 75 after the Buckeyes built leads as high as 13 points.

The Buckeyes were playing some dominant basketball at times. The Iowa team just kept coming back and there was no stopping them. It was a good thing the Buckeyes got the last shot, otherwise Matta may have said some less kind things about his Buckeyes.
