When I first saw that tip-in from Georgetown sophmore forward Aaron Bowen, I just sat in front of the TV with my jaw dropped for about the next minute. I then searched the interwebs for a video or GIF for the next few hours after the play, but didn't find anything until that above GIF (thanks to @CasualHoya) just now.
Oh, and I didn't realize until just reading a recap of the game that Bowen's tip-in (which occurred with 3:38 remaining) ended up being the GAME-WINNING SHOT in Georgetown's 53-51 upset victory over No. 5 Louisville, as neither team made another field goal after that. Not a bad game-winning shot, right?
Bowen told the Washington Examiner, "I just went in for the rebound, and I was just blessed that it went in."
Teammate Markel Starks, who had 17 points for the Hoyas in the win, said, "As soon as we went in the locker room, I told him I've never seen anything like that. I tell him all the time that he's probably one of the most athletic people on this planet. When the shot went up, he just came out of nowhere. He just tipped it, and it was unbelievable."
