A low scoring, slow moving game between Michigan State and Syracuse had an unbelievable finish to the first half. Spartans guard Matt McQuaid made a three that really defied description.
WHAT. A. FINISH. 😳

Twitter reacted to the circus shot.
The natural comparison was to Michigan’s Jordan Poole, who hit a game-winning three for the Wolverines on Saturday.
Jordan Poole thinks that shot by Matt McQuaid was pretty damn good.

Of course, other responses were more varied.
Does Matt McQuaid get an assist there, too?

It only took almost 3 full years, but Matt McQuaid has finally pulled off a somewhat athletic looking play

Matt McQuaid planned to get blocked and knew the only way to create space would be to throw it off glass when the ball came back to him. Great awareness, hustle and sharp shooting

Note to self — never play horse with Matt McQuaid. #MarchMadness

Okay, then. It seems like Mr. McQuaid may be a busy man.
