Jonas Knox and LaVar Arrington react to TCU delivering the ultimate bad beat, by hitting a buzzer-beating three-pointer at the end of their 84-81 loss to Gonzaga, which meant nothing to the outcome of the game or the tournament as a whole, but cost a lost of bettors who put money down on the Zags -4.5 points.
Jonas Knox: "You heard moans and groans in the crowd. You saw people immediately go to social media afterwards and I think that's a big win for the gambling community, a community I've been a part of for a couple of decades.
Everyone said it's taboo, you can't talk gambling, you can't get into all this stuff. Not only are they talking about it on the TV broadcast, now they're mentioning it in the radio broadcasts that we played earlier. This is a big-big win. It may suck in the short term for a lot of people who had Gonzaga -4.5, to lose on a play like that. But the fact that gambling is at the forefront and it has become a talking point and a discussion point that there are moans and groans from the crowd over a bad beat, I think is a really-really special moment for us degenerate gamblers out there."
