Good morning! Here are the plays everybody will be talking about Thursday.
The dunk of the night. Northern Iowa beat Evansville 57-54, but the reason we are talking about the game is Wes Washpun. The 6-foot-1 senior guard went up strong and threw down a hammer of a dunk and he did it over a 6-foot-10 center. Wammy!
The pass of the night. The Timberwolves may have drafted two point guards before Stephen Curry in the 2009 NBA Draft, but one of those player, Ricky Rubio, has been a productive NBA player. He may not be able to shoot worth a lick, but Rubio can pass, and on Wednesday night he put that on display with this game-clinching pass in the final seconds. Rubio goes between the legs of the defender to Karl-Anthony Towns. The T-Wolves won 108-102. Saucy! (via The Cauldron)
The alley-oop of the night. Florida beat Arkansas 87-83 with the prettiest two points coming from Chris Chiozza. The sophomore guard splits a double-team by going behind his back and between his legs, and then still has the court presence to find his teammate for the alley-oop dunk. Where did he go! (via ESPN)
Bonus. A Gatorade bath for the player of the night has become a standard post-game celebration in baseball. The Warriors may have just brought it to the NBA with Draymond Green cooling off Stephen Curry who dropped 51 on Washington Wizards. (via SB Nation)
