A well-executed lob pass is a thing of beauty. It looks even better when it goes in the basket.
As fate would have it, that happened twice on Wednesday night. Ohio State point guard Aaron Craft threw an alley-oop feed intended for teammate Sam Thompson that went directly in the bucket.
Minnesota’s Julian Welch tossed a lob to Rodney Williams that went in as well.
It was just piling on for the Buckeyes, who routed Penn State, 78-54. But for the Gophers, there wasn’t much joy to take from a 88-52 loss to Michigan State.
Check the videos below for the coincidence of this happening on the same night in the same conference.
