I still like this one too

Especially since it was just a couple weeks after this one (skip to 40seconds to skip the build-up)

https://www.youtube.com/v/PDBbyen3Cqs

That season gave me heartburn. So many games decided by less than 5 points.

I actually would put Vander's shot against St John's to clinch a piece of the BEast title earlier in that season above it too.

You almost need a regular season list (i.e. all of Jimmy Butler's last second heroics) vs. shots that meant something in the tourney or or to clinch something important.

If by "best shot" or "greatest shot" you mean the most amazing, had-to-see-it-to-believe-it shot, it has to be Sam's three last night.

If, on the other hand, you mean the most momentous or meaningful shot, then it would have to be one that took place in a bigger, more meaningful game.

I voted for Sam's. I saw it. And I'm still not sure I believe it.

I think that was the same season as  Vander's shot against Davidson, but that wasn't the same because I was watching on TV instead of in the arena.

Doc's shot was like 3/8 court.....Not half court......But he literally was sideways falling out of bounds....It was a major prayer.....

He was just a few feet from Raymond's seat on the bench.....I was in the first row behind Raymonds.....

What is funny.....We had a direct line of the shot.....And after it left his hand.....You totally could see it was "distinctly" left of the hoop.....So there was no expectation of it going it......

Perfect bank.....I mean drilled.....Swish.....

Hank was standing and falls back into his chair....Stunned.....

The players went after Rivers.....We hurdled the chairs on the bench and were jumping around on the court like fools until the whole student section joined us.....Only like 3 isles from behind the basket for them to get there.....Took a bit of time.....

You got to realize.....Down by 1....To win by 1.....There was no second chance......No 3 point line back then.....

That's the one that gets remembered, but in the conference opener, Junior had the three to force OT that I think had the higher degree of difficulty.  Both huge, both needed to win the conference, take your pick.

That a typical Doc outside shot back in the day. Not many that left his hand looked like it was going in. He was a very good MU player, but outside shooting was not his strength. He should have tried more falling out of bounds shots during his days at MU.

The UNCC bucket by Jerome was a fortunate accident.
This video shows it clearly.  The UNCC game starts about the 13:31 mark.
The pass was supposed to go to Bo Ellis but it was too high.
Went through Maxwell's hands into Jerome.
Jerome went to stuff it but Maxwell blocked it.
Fortunately it hit the backboard and went in.

Beating Bucky in 1974

To drive Bucky fans to this level of hatred will NEVER get old.

https://marquettewire.org/3982899/sports/one-finger-salute-vulgar-image-captures-peak-of-marquette-wisconsin-rivalry/

Maurice Lucas, a 6-foot-9 power forward with NBA-ready basketball skills but hardly any perimeter shooting skills, grabbed the rebound and began dribbling the ball with only seconds on the clock. He briefly fumbled it, regained control, and let it fly. The ball soared about 20 feet across the court.
Swish.

“The place, it was the loudest indoor noise I have ever heard,” said Mike Gonring, Marquette basketball’s sports information director at the time. “It was incredible roar with this blizzard going on outside. I know friends of mine that conceived that night and named their child Luke. It was unbelievable.”

I remember being 3 rows behind Pitino’s bench for that shot.

Another shot that I’ll always remember was the first big east game ever against UConn. Wasn’t confident going in. Buddy and i kept saying to win each 4 minutes.  Marquette starts building a lead, get more confidence. Novak is on fire. He’s at the top of the key. Ball gets poked away, he goes out to get it at half court. Takes a dribble or two, and hits what felt like a 35 footer. Always remembered that crap as it felt like the final dagger.

Heer ya goe, hey?

MILWAUKEE, Feb. 5 (AP)—Maurice Lucas sank a 20‐foot jump shot at the buzzer tonight to give sixth‐ranked Marquette a 59‐58 basketball victory over Wisconsin.

The Warriors trailed by 9 points with 6½ minutes to play before storming back.

Lucas connected after Wisconsin blew a chance to increase its 58‐57 lead when Kim Hughes missed a pair of free throws with 17 seconds left.

Marquette grabbed the rebound and worked the ball into the front court. Lucas, bothered by a sore shoulder, dropped a pass from Dave Delsman but recovered the ball, turned around and fired from the left of the key. The shot went through as the buzzer sounded.

The Badgers, whose starting line‐up averages 6 feet 8 inches, controlled the boards most of the way and rattled the Warriors with a zone press.

Funny, I have memory of Hughes missing the free throws (having been reminded).  And I've always remembered Al jumping on the table.  I'm confident that my personal experience was all through the radio because I certainly wasn't at the game.

I forgot that my neighbor Mr. Joe Brady is in the middle of the picture. He ran the clock for many, many years and great MU memories with the Brady family. FYI— he is the man in stripes sitting at scorer’s table.

I have a ton of Al memories, but Al on the table after Luke’s shot is extremely high in my life memories. Blizzard outside and the place was still jumping. Plus, two of my childhood idols are in the picture directly in front of Mr. Hughes. Funny thing is, 45 years later and that couple still looks the same in mind today.

Were you at a student at the game?

In terms of memories, Wardle at Freedom Hall to beat Louisville is up there. I remember thinking they were toast not long before that

Amen.  Watched that game at Major Goolsbys.  No sound and the TV was so off center so we couldn't see the score bug / clock.  We were running to our cars to hear Homer call the time remaining throughout the 2nd half. 

Wardle's shot...Homer's best call in my opinion.

Heer ya goe, hey?

MILWAUKEE, Feb. 5 (AP)—Maurice Lucas sank a 20‐foot jump shot at the buzzer tonight to give sixth‐ranked Marquette a 59‐58 basketball victory over Wisconsin.

The Warriors trailed by 9 points with 6½ minutes to play before storming back.

Delsman was a good puncher too.

Agree on the Dameon Mason's shot.

But Dominic James dominance at Valpo in Nov 2006, and that game winning shot, was in Top 5 for me.

Voted for Whitehead, but being in the gym in Louisville for both Hutchins and Wardle's shots will always be big for me personally. God I'd love to start a non-conference home-and-home with them again.

While I loved the moment last night, Sam's would be last on that list for me. After J in '77, Doc's half court to beat ND was most excited in my lifetime.

Mother Goose

I also voted for Doc's shot against ND, mainly because I know him and that I was there in person. Simply put, one of most dramatic sporting moments I have witnessed personally.

For impact, though, there is no question Butch to J was epic.

Yeah, I was there too.  1977 is just somore important.  Though, Luke’s shot and Al’s table dance were extremely nice as well.

That would have been my Number 2 as well. It was at home and it was against the Red Rodent.

But.... a NatChamp is still a NatChamp and there would be no NatChamp without Jerome and Butch. And, there may well be no Marquette basketball, given the stance of folks that ran the place in the 1980s, were it not for the NatChamp. Or worse, we could be Loyola with one or two shining moments but we'd be spending our lives playing Bradley, Illinois State and Southern Illinois.

We're a force to be reckoned with today. Maybe we will get back to where we should be and once were. But without Butch and Jerome, God only knows where we would be today!

A lot of great one's to pick from. After further review, Luke's #2 on my list followed by Doc. Have a ton of great memories of Doc and Marc, pre "issue", and loved the ND win. Luke's shot was memorable in many ways. Though, too young to have celebrated it like I would today, it was an unbelievable win. I remember that day/night like it was yesterday. For the record, Luke was one bad dude and a very, very nice guy. To boot, he was very smart and knew how to make and save a buck.

The Vander Blue drive was pure chutzpah. That SOB absolutely, positively knew he had it. There was never a question which made it priceless.

"issue"  Well put

No bucket by Jerome Whitehead and there is no National Championship.  That simple.

Actually, not that simple.  If they don't count that bucket, we go to overtime and have a chance to win.

It was fun finding the recordings and putting those little videos (with pictures) together.  I actually have video from Hutch's shot, but it is really poor.  Going to mess with it when I have some time to see if I can clean it up and post it.  Back then the video encoding for files was not good, they were very small, just not up to snuff by today's standards...hell, it was over 20 years ago and I was putting that stuff together for gomarquette.com with pretty much zero tools or experience. Learning on the fly.

One that I haven't seen mentioned here was Jae's shot vs. Washington in 2011. Coming off a win in the Kohl Hole, stayed undefeated at 8-0, MSG, national television. Probably felt bigger at the time, especially with the undefeated season on the line, but a HUGE shot nonetheless.

That was a very key shot to keeping our momentum that season.

Post by: MU82 on January 11, 2019, 07:46:28 PM
Yeah, there can be all sorts of categories here.

Biggest shot I witnessed in person definitely was Rivers' 3. Means a little more to me because it was against ND, because I was a student at the time and because I really like Glenn as a person.

Most of us agree that Whitehead's bucket belongs at the top because of the importance of it. As Return of Chicos said, it wasn't a case of "no basket, no title," though, because the game would have gone into OT and we'll never know what would have happened. Glad we didn't have to find out! I was a 16-year-old HS junior and watched it on TV ... super jealous of all those who were there!!!!

Vander's "make it or go home" shot vs Davidson actually was more of a must-have basket. Add the improbability of all that occurred during the last 80-90 seconds of that game, and it stands out more.

I remember we had a similar thread after that talking about the big shots that year and there actually were a few folks who thought Jake Thomas' 4-point play vs. Syracuse was bigger than Junior's 3 vs. UConn. If the latter doesn't go in, we lose - period. Those who liked the Thomas shot claimed it changed momentum and got the crowd in the game, but the fact is that Syracuse regrouped and rebuilt their lead; one could make a good argument that the Thomas shot wasn't even Marquette's biggest basket that game, let alone that season.

I don't remember the Lucas shot at all. I was too young, living in Connecticut and there was no FoxSports Go or ESPN3 back then!

The Jimmy shots ... they were awesome. Novak - yep, yep. He made a few big ones vs. Missou in the NCAAs.

If I had to vote, I'm obviously going with Whitehead. If we exclude that because it's so obvious or if we limit it to games we witnessed personally, I'd go with Rivers. And Vander's was special to me, too.

I remember my Dad smoking in his seat in aisle 12 during the game. One of my favorite memories of the Arena was being in the Tip-off room or the hallway outside the aisles and the smoke filled halls. That coupled with the smell of beer, great hot dogs and buttered popcorn remains in my my memory like it was yesterday. Add a top three program in the country, what’s not to love?

It's certainly not gonna make an all-time list because of the rest of the season, but Carlino's shot against Creighton was huge. His shot against Georgetown would've been even bigger had his toe been behind the line and we not lost in overtime.

It's too bad that 2015 team was such a disappointment, because Carlino was a stud that year. Wish he could've played in the postseason for us.

Dwayne Johnson's baseline jumper against Mizzou in '83.  Big win for a disappointing team.  Reason for making the list-- Hank Raymonds screaming "We've got you by the balls now!!" at Norm Stewart.  Classic.
