College basketball fans are living large these days in Columbus. On Tuesday night, the Buckeyes defeated No. 4 ranked Duke 85-63. The Buckeyes led the game from wire to wire, leading by as much as 25. And while there were plenty of Ohio State highlights to choose from, there was one play in particular that highlighted the kind of night it was for the Buckeyes.
During the second half of Tuesday’s win, Aaron Craft attempted a bounce pass to teammate Jared Sullinger through the legs of Duke forward Miles Plumlee.
But the pass ricochets off Plumlee’s leg and comes back to Craft, who then scores the easy deuce. Check out the video after the jump to view the crazy “self-assist.”
Ohio State is currently ranked No. 2 in the country, and if they keep up the type of play they exhibited Tuesday night, Ohioans will be talking about a lot more than the hiring of Urban Meyer as head football coach this winter.
