Ohio State and Dayton delivered an unbelievable finale in the opening game of the 2014 NCAA tournament, featuring the image of a defeated Aaron Craft lying exhausted on the floor. That's when the Internet took over. 

With mere seconds on the clock and trailing 60-59, the Buckeyes' star guard, Craft, took the ball up the court to attempt a game-winning shot. It clanked off the rim, sealing the Flyers' upset victory. 

That's when hilarity ensued. 

The Score's Josh Gold-Smith tweeted this challenge of sorts:

The Dan Patrick Show's Paul Pabst illustrates life isn't all bad: 

SB Nation's Nick Fasulo has Craft worrying about TPS reports: 

We are more worried about his legs.

How do fans feel about this? (via The Whistle):

Finally, this Twitter user sums things up with some Key and Peele, which is always nice. 

We might as well end by doffing our cap to Craft who was an absolute dynamo throughout parts of the game, dropping 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting from the floor, also adding five rebounds, four assists and four steals. 

His play in the waning moments of the game had most fans thinking his last-second shot might actually save Ohio State from an early exit. 

Unfortunately, for OSU faithful, that's not how it would end. On the positive side, we got a good laugh thanks to the quick Photoshop skills of Internet denizens. 

Of course, this will be the first of many memes throughout the tournament, which is a good thing, because, knowing our brackets, we will need the chuckle.
