I admit I yelled "Run it out" at my TV.
Dunk at home, burn clock away...
This is what you do.
-Don't slow down, take the points.
-Payne grabs the ball as it goes through the hoop and pushes it into the cheerleaders to slow down the transition.
Michigan State University is the university of Michigan
correct: he MADE the shot with about 16 seconds or so left in game and only up 2...if he dribbles and is fouled, THEN misses the free throws it's disastrous. He rightly dunked it, then Smith came back down and made a tough 3 and the clock stopped at 10.8 seconds: worked out perfect for us as we then got fouled and made 2 FT's to ice the game with an assist from Scott who hoisted up a BRUTAL shot at the end. Mission accomplished.
I’m just wondering how long the OP and his boner pal argued over the correct way to play out the game situation that hadn’t actually occurred.
Next up for boner debate – a football team on the road scores a late touchdown and is down by one (even though it was actually tied). Do you show some balls and go for two, or just kick the PAT and play for overtime?
No. I came to that conclusion even before he jumped. Free throws are not gimmes. Waiting on the defense to kill a second or two isn't worth it. Put the ball in the hole! But the thought definitely crossed my mind.

I like this.
Doesn't clock stop on made basket and could that be a technical for delay of game?
Pretty sure he meant that Payne should do that so that the defense (Appling) could get back, not to run more clock. If they hadn't been warned previously, he would've only gotten a delay of game warning.
Should have dunked it after waiting as long as possible

Memories of Bob Chapman die hard.
Yeah, but I wouldn't take the chance.
He's not as good as Craft? Interesting.......
Take the points. It appears this thread isn't much of a debate.
Wasn't Valentine doing the game? Automatic T, Payne suspended, OSU shoots 2 FTs and gets the ball.
If you watch the replay, Ravenel (I think) gets down there about 2-3 seconds after Appling goes to the rim.
2 points > 2 more seconds off and possibly not having those 2 points.

No, but SOMEBODY should have taken a delay of game and knocked the ball away after the dunk or just stepped into into the inbounders area 'OVER THE LINE'
Marriage is like flying with kids, if the flight had 500 connections, never ended, Ted Striker were your pilot and you ate the fish.
Nope, take the point when up by two. If we had been up by 4+ I would have liked to see him dribble, but you have to take points there.
Valentine AND Eades... seriously pick any of the following four TERRIBLE refs and MSU is guaranteed to have one: Jim Burr, Mike Eades, Ted Valentine, Ed Hightower. Every game..
You just know Hightower is going to be in Madison on Tuesday.
Is there any effort to not have the same refs do back to back games of the same team. If so that may spare us from Eades and Valentine.
I've seen too many times where teams try to play not to lose at the end of games and it seems they lose too often from that kind of play. Similar to playing a prevent defense in football.
You are right, he could have burned another two seconds max.
There's also some psychology at play when you're comparing a transition dunk to a transition stand-under-the-basket-then-layup-after-3-seconds. Appling was making a statement there, and the crowd went wild.
I also agree with whoever said Payne should bump the ball.
