The 14th seeded Ohio University Bobcats beat the 3rd seeded Georgetown Hoyas Thursday night in the biggest upset of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament so far. The (living) ghosts of Patrick “Don’t Call Me Chewing” Ewing, Dikembe Mutumbo, Alonzo Mourning and Allen Iverson were not enough to help Georgetown as Armon Bassett and OU pretty much stomped them the whole game, winning 97-83. The win sets OU up for a meeting with 6th seed Tennessee at 3:35pm on Saturday, with a trip to the Sweet 16 at stake. It also makes the whole team Nacho Donut Heroes.

This is the biggest win for OU Basketball in a long time so there was for sure some debauchery to be had. OU students don’t need an excuse to party like some other lame colleges do, but when there is a specific reason to celebrate they do that shit right. No doubt, people were drinking a shit ton of Black Widows (The Pigskin), Junction Punches (The Junction) and Aquariums (The Pub) to show their support for the Robertcats of Ohio. I bet The Pub smells even more like puke after Thursday night. There are mad YouTube clips of people going crazy at OU after the game; I’ve included two below, but if you go to the YouTube pages for these clips and check out the right column you can see a ton of other videos. There must be a good amount of video production majors at OU or something, there’s a lot of students with cameras handy to catch some casual rioting/celebrating.

CLEVELAND (AP) Armon Bassett scored 38 points to lead Ohio past top-seeded Kent State, 81-64 Thursday night in the quarterfinals of the Mid-American Conference tournament.

Bassett dominated the game for the ninth-seeded Bobcats, who advance to the semifinals against either Buffalo or Miami (Ohio) on Friday night. The junior guard was 9 of 17 from the field, made all 16 of his free throws, had seven assists and five rebounds in playing all 40 minutes.

If I were at O.U. tonight some shirts would have been burned if not couch cushions. Then I would drink some black widows and wake up tomorrow with a burrito in my pocket. How does it feel to be beaten by the nine seed, Kent? Ohio shot an amazing 50% from the field for the game. Armon Bassett put on a show that was probably better than that of Sonny Troutman’s legendary performance in the 2005 tournament. For some reason the best basketball players at O.U. seem to have some kind of indirect fish reference in their names.

2 more wins and Ohio can get back to the NCAA tournament. I might go to the championship on Saturday if we make it that far.
