Stevie Taylor Grabs The Most Awkward Rebound Ever

New, comment

During Ohio's 73-50 rout of EMU Wednesday night 'Cats backup point guard Stevie Taylor dove for a rebound, the result was awkward to say the least.

Wednesday night the Eastern Michigan-Ohio game that was canceled back in January due to an "armed gunman" on the Ohio University campus, finally happened. It was a game full of plenty of historical moments, including star senior D.J. Cooper moving into a tie for 13th on the NCAA career assists leader board. But one thing stood out above the rest.

In the first half 'Cats backup point guard Stevie Taylor dove past Eagles guard J.R. Sims for a rebound. The result, possibly the greatest photo in #MACsketball (have we given up on that one yet?) history. Taylor's face is priceless and so is the horrified look on teammate Jon Smith.

Thankfully for Stevie, he and his fellow 'Cats got their revenge for this photo. They beat the Eagles 73-50 in a completely one-sided game and improved to 11-1 in the Mid-American Conference; their best conference start since the 1984-1985 season.

It's alright Stevie, most people will still remember this moment.
