Eric Hunter Jr. delivers perfect pass to Aaron Wheeler for beautiful alley-oop, Purdue owns halftime lead on Minnesota
Eric Hunter Jr. was responsible for the beautiful pass and Aaron Wheeler knew exactly what to do with it.
Late in the 1st half of Thursday afternoon’s B1G clash between Purdue and Minnesota, Hunter and Wheeler were able to get into a fast-break situation after a Gophers miss and made them pay in impressive fashion.
Bolting down the floor, Hunter went end to end before delivering the perfect pass to Wheeler, who threw it down for a monstrous dunk over a Minnesota defender. That alley-oop was part of a 10-run by the Boilermakers.
