Watford merely confirmed their feelings.
“Definitely, I feel like that,” he said. “My motivation is to play with these guys as long as possible and I’m willing to do whatever it takes in order to keep playing. I just want to play ‘till we can’t play no more.”
IU coach Tom Crean interjected with his own thoughts.
“Think you can sell as many pictures of that?” Crean asked from the dais, referring to the iconic status of Watford’s UK bomb.
I don’t know how many Watford rejection posters IU might sell. I do know that Watford’s block ensured that the Hoosiers still have a chance to hang another NCAA championship banner in Assembly Hall.
That gives Watford’s block a bigger place in IU immortality than his kill shot against Kentucky did.
