As we approach the last game in Mackey Arena, not only for the year, but also the last time we will see it at 14,123 bleacher seats before the renovation, I thought it would be a good idea to review those "Mackey Magic" moments from the 2010-11 season, most of them with video then discuss what has been your favorite moment.
- E'twaun's alley-op dunk (from Barlow I believe) against Howard
- Hart's fake behind the pass that went in for a lay-up (I guess that's how I would describe it) against Austin Peay (1st Half)*
- E'twaun missing a 3 pointer but Barlow put's it back in with a dunk against Alabama (1st Half)*
- JaJuan's inbound dunk against IPFW
- Barlow's alley-oop dunk from E'twaun against Northwestern (2nd Half)*

These are just some of the top highlights in my opinion from the year so far. What have been your favorite memories this year? I created a poll for readers to vote on their favorite memory (as well as an "Other" option). Comment as well discussing why a certain highlight was your favorite.
Who knows, we might have more big time highlights against Illinois tomorrow.
Be Loud. Be Proud. Wear Black. BOILER UP!
