After suffering a disappointing loss to Stephen F. Austin earlier this week, the Memphis Tigers are looking to rebound with a win over Bradley. And plays like the one made in the first half by sophomore forward Nick King will help in that regard.
Teammate Kuran Iverson was in trouble on the baseline, trapped by two Bradley defenders and on the verge of winding up out of bounds. While some players will call a timeout in that spot others will attempt to throw the ball off of the defender, which is what Iverson attempted to do here.
Unfortunately for Bradley’s Mike Shaw, the ball wound up in King’s hands. The result: an impressive posterization.
