After falling at No. 2 Virginia on Saturday, No. 9 Louisville rebounded with a 69-53 home win over Pittsburgh. The star of the game for the Cardinals was junior forward Montrezl Harrell, who accounted for 28 points and 12 rebounds. And he was also part of a play that, had it counted, would’ve gone down as one of the most impressive in college basketball.
After forcing a turnover freshman guard Quentin Snider lofted a pass ahead to Harrell while falling to the floor. But instead of simply catching the ball, Harrell turned the play into an alley-oop. With the referee ruling that Snider was fouled by Pitt’s Sheldon Jeter while making the pass, the play was waved off.
But that doesn’t change the fact that both the pass and the dunk were highly impressive.
