Xavier defeated Providence 78-69 this afternoon. Musketeer forward Jalen Reynolds tied for the team lead in points with 19, while point guard Dee Davis dished out 15 assists. Together, the two combined on a ridiculous fast break alley-oop.
Check it out:
Davis’ pass is a risky one with no one back on defense, let alone with a defender right there. And give credit to the Providence defender for reading the alley-oop and trying to make a play on it. Unfortunately for him, trying to make that play and actually doing it are two different things, especially with Reynolds above the rim like he was.
