Did You See This? Oladipo goes for late 360 slam

Victor Oladipo was having a pedestrian day, all things considered, before he loudly announced his presence with a fastbreak 360 slam in the waning moments of Indiana’s win over Illinois in the Big Ten tourney quarterfinals Friday afternoon. Despite finishing the game with a double-double (12 points, 11 rebounds), the junior star struggled early and wasn’t much of a factor until the second half. And then, came the dunk. Watch it here and see some of the Twitter reaction to it in this post.

No place for that in college b-ball when it’s done just to show-up an opponent. Sour grapes – maybe. I will, nometheless, take IU in the tourney, as I feel that it is the best team in the country.

I agree with Ted and will go even further: unnecessary and poor sportsmanship. I also agree that Indiana may be the best team in the country. Try to play with more class.

That wasn’t showing anybody up. They’re kids having fun! If Illini didn’t like it they should take better care of the ball.

Even as an IU-hater, I have to say Ted and Badger Fan are out of their minds. That 360 dunk is not poor sportsmanship. I bet no one on the Illini team felt that it was either.

I’m an old timer, started watching the Hoosiers back in the 1950’s, I say #4, Victor traveled so much on this unneeded play, he should have had his bags packed.

That dunk was awesome and I’m not even an IU fan. If you don’t enjoy it start women’s bball buddy!

Hot dog…poor sportsmanship in a hard fought game. Today there was a reckoning as Olapido could not hit the bunnies and committed terrible fouls down the stretch. Big Ten’s top player is Deshaun Thomas

Should have saved some of his showoff energy for Wisconson!!!! I’m sure there are a lot of players in the big ten that could be a showoff when he is totally ungarded!
