Aaron Craft Gets Fancy

Everything went Ohio State’s way in Tuesday night’s 85-63 win over No. 4 Duke in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge (recap). At one point even, point guard Aaron Craft attempted to pass to Jared Sullinger through an opponent’s legs, only to have it deflect off Miles Plumlee’s leg and go right to himself in rhythm for a layup. If you didn’t watch it closely, it almost looked like Craft went five-hole to set himself up for the easy bucket. Either way, it was a great play on a night where it was all Buckeyes.

If you’re fielding a dunk contest of only 7-footers, there might not be a better contestant than Illinois’ Meyers Leonard. The 7-foot-1 sophomore is an absolute freak of an athlete. People his size aren’t supposed to run the floor and move as smoothly and easily as he does. See what we’re talking about in this video of Leonard bringing down the house at Assembly Hall with a rim-rattling slam. Pretty impressive, huh?

That all changed against Western Michigan, though, as Jackson threw down for the first time in a game. And what a first jam it was. Something tells us Jackson won’t soon forget this poke. Watch the powerful dunk now.
