Better block: Rodney Williams or Eric May?

Eric May

Eric May Monster Block

The last two nights in the Big Ten have provided college basketball fans with two exciting upsets and a pair of the more impressive blocked shots of the season. On Tuesday night, it was Rodney Williams jumping out of the gym to block a final-minute Victor Oladipo 3-pointer. And tonight, it was Eric May coming from behind to swat Terone Johnson in the final minute. Which block was better? Watch both in this post and vote below.

Rodney Williams Soars for the Block

Marilyn Indahl-USA TODAY Sports

Everybody knows Minnesota’s Rodney Williams can jump. He’s one of the nation’s elite dunkers, after all. In Tuesday night’s upset over No. 1 Indiana, Williams showed off his ups on the defensive end. And the athletic senior’s block of Victor Oladipo’s late 3 was just as pretty as any of his highlight dunks. Watch Williams soar to block Oladipo’s shot in the final minute of the upset here.

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.

Evans Dunks It Back In With Gusto

Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

Prior to Sunday’s tip vs. Ohio State, Wisconsin’s Ryan Evans was listed as questionable due to illness. Evans started despite being under the weather, and it’s a good thing he did. Not only did he help No. 20 Wisconsin beat No. 13 Ohio State, the senior provided one of the best individual highlights of his career with a remarkable second-half putback.

Have you heard of the Harlem Shake? If not, it’s a recent internet phenomenon based on viral videos that feature a lot of dancing. Usually, it starts with one person dancing alone for 15 seconds, surrounded by others unaware of the person. And 15 seconds later, when the bass drops, the entire group joins in and starts dancing for the next 15 seconds.

Matt Painter Ejected from Game vs. Illinois

Entering Wednesday night’s game at Illinois, Purdue had lost three of its last four contests. That being the case, Matt Painter and his staff were probably already a little frustrated before things tipped. And that frustration only got worse as Purdue couldn’t hold onto the ball (16 turnovers) and allowed offensive rebound after offensive rebound (22). Eventually, it all boiled over.

Did You See This? J.J. Watt and Yao Ming photo

Wired for sound during an NFL game this season, Wisconsin product and current Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt famously told Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice: “I’ve eaten burritos bigger than you.” It was funny, because Watt, 6-5, 295 pounds, dwarfs Rice, 5-8, 212 pounds. On Tuesday, it was Watt’s turn as the burrito, if you will.

Right when Ben Brust’s buzzer-beater fell Saturday afternoon, it brought back memories of Evan Turner’s game-winner in the 2010 Big Ten tourney. Honestly, the two shots are that similar. Not just from the standpoint they both came against Michigan, either. Both also followed clutch shots by the Wolverines and were released from close to the same spot on the floor.
