Say, does Rodney Williams still suit up for Minnesota? Nope. Austin Hollins was the high-flyer who soared for the Williams-esque one-handed alley-oop vs. New Orleans on Saturday. Boy, can he fly. Hollins has shown his ups all year, but he hasn’t had a better finish than this jam. Watch it in this post.
Here’s a random, but accurate, statement: Sam Thompson is the Big Ten’s elite weapon on inbound passes under his own basket. The Ohio State junior boasts a thick scrapbook of flying in for jaw-dropping alley-oops on said plays. Somehow, opponents haven’t accounted for it. Watch Thompson’s latest inbound alley-oop in this post.
If opponents aren’t careful, Wisconsin’s Sam Dekker has shown he’s more than willing to put them on a poster. The sophomore sensation showcased his leaping ability and power on an impressive two-handed slam in the first half of Saturday’s 70-64 win over Marquette at the Kohl Center. Watch Dekker delight the Badger faithful in this post.
