Did You See This? Cody Zeller's hustle sequence

Cody Zeller

Zeller Hustles All Over The Floor, Steals and Dunks

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

There’s no denying it, Cody Zeller struggled in No. 1 Indiana’s loss Tuesday at Minnesota. The sophomore also got off to a rough start in Saturday’s win over Iowa, but he opened the game aggressive and was rewarded for his hustle on an incredible first-half sequence. It all started on defense, where Zeller dived from behind to knock the ball loose, and then got up to his feet and hammered down a powerful dunk. Watch the sequence here.

Glenn Robinson Jr. III Dunk

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

It didn’t take long for Michigan’s Glenn Robinson III to make an impact in Wednesday’s loss at Penn State. Just more than one minute in, the freshman drove and exploded for a powerful one-handed flush over Ross Travis. As if the dunk wasn’t good enough on its own, Robinson III punctuated it with a little flare at the end – even if it was accidental. Watch the dunk now, and pay close attention to the end as the ball caroms off Robinson III’s head.

Slam Thompson's Insane Dunk Off The Inbound

Somehow, someway, teams continue to forget about Ohio State’s Sam Thompson on baseline inbound plays. The guy is one of the Big Ten’s elite leapers and dunkers, so it only makes sense that opponents would account for him and keep him out of the lane. Right? Nope. The sophomore found a free path to the basket and poked home another inbound pass in Sunday’s win over No. 5 Michigan State. Watch the play in this post.

Victor Oladipo Dunk

It’s a move players think of doing quite a bit, but it’s one they rarely attempt in a game situation. Unless your name is Victor Oladipo, apparently. In Tuesday’s 72-68 victory at No. 5 Michigan State, the exciting junior threw the inbound pass off Matt Costello’s backside, and it worked to perfection. In typical Oladipo fashion, he turned the inbound pass into a quick, powerful slam. Watch the play here.
