What has been your favorite memory at Mackey this year?

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)*
  • JaJuan hitting the game winning shot against Penn State: at the 1:20 mark
  • Lew Jack splitting through 3 defenders and Smith's 3 pointer against Michigan State:
  •  Barlow's dunk against Michigan State:
  • E'twaun's dunk against IU from Barlow:
  • Lew Jack breaking through the Wisconsin defense and E'twaun dunking over Leuer:
  • E'twaun going bananas against Ohio State with 38 points, more specifically his 8 point run in the 1st half that included his circus lay-up that was #1 on SC's Top 10: (note: remember, we never gave up the lead after this)
  • JaJuan's dunk at the end of the Ohio State game:

*Can be viewed on
Other moments to remember involving the fans and Paint Crew (not included in the poll):

  • The Paint Crew singing "Party in the USA" when Sullinger was shooting free throws in the 2nd half:
  • Hail Fire at the IU game:
  • Everyone in Mackey after the Ohio State game:


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.
