The alley-oop has always been a fun play in college basketball, going back to the days when NC State ran it for David Thompson in the 1970’s when the dunk was still outlawed and point guards such as Syracuse’s Sherman Douglas showed themselves to be masters of the pass during the 1980’s.

The pass thrown by Western Carolina’s Mike Brown wasn’t the most accurate, but that was no issue for James Sinclair Jr. Sinclair, who scored a game-high 22 points in the Catamounts’ 78-70 win over The Citadel on Saturday, managed to reel in the pass for a one-handed dunk. Nice grab, James.
