When you have a seven-footer on your roster, sometimes the best option is to lob the basketball in the air and watch him go up and get it.
That’s exactly how Purdue perfected an out-of-bounds play in the first half of Sunday’s game against Michigan State. The result was a picture-perfect alley-oop from Ryan Cline to Matt Haarms.
With the alley-oop, the Boilermakers took an early 10-point lead over No. 6 Michigan State.

You won’t see many inbounds plays executed any better than that.
Purdue is 9-0 at Mackey Arena this season and is hoping to add another signature win to its NCAA tournament resume. That alley-oop will certainly make some highlight reels, too.
