ASU Moment of the Year seed No. 5: Jordan Bachynski walk-off block vs. Marquette

Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

The first of three "walk-offs" for the Canadian last season.

Next week House of Sparky will begin our "ASU Moment of the Year" tournament, with the 16 best moments from the athletic season. This week we will randomly introduce all 16 moments, then reveal our seedings and match-ups next week, where you, the reader, will vote on what was the Moment of the Year in Arizona State athletics.

Seven seconds remained in the game with the Sun Devils leading 79-77. Marquette guard Derrick Wilson drove left and laid up a soft floater that met the hand of Arizona State 7-foot-2 center Jordan Bachynski.

The Golden Eagles were ranked No. 25 in the country at the time and were the Sun Devils first true test of the young season, the win solidified what was seen at the time as a potential NCAA tournament team. Bachynski, who stained his No. 13 jersey with blood earlier in the game, put on what he said was the only number available on the bench No. 42.

A defensive play to seal a win for Arizona State wearing the No. 42. It's hard to write a movie script better than that. Bachynski had a double-double 14 points and 12 rebounds on top of his high-reaching moment. It was the Canadian's sixth straight game with a double-double at the time, Bachynski went on to break his own single-season Pac-12 record for blocks that he set in his junior year.
