For those of you who don’t know, I attended Montana State for my freshman year of college, and worked for the basketball program.
That’s how I know how big of a stage this was Saturday night for Thompson. The Bobcats/Grizzlies rivalry is one of the biggest in all of sports.
People take it insanely seriously, and I have no doubt the Brick Breeden was absolutely packed when Thompson pulled off this shot.
Imagine stepping up with more than $11,000 on the line, and just hammering a full-court shot like it was nothing.
All things considered, his celebration was pretty tame. The young man just has ice in his veins. I would have been going insane if I did that.
While the Bobcats might have lost the game, I think it’s safe to say Thompson was the big winner! Props to the young man out in Bozeman for earning himself a payday in front of a packed basketball stadium.
You love to see it! Let’s hope he enjoyed copious amounts of beer after the fact!
