This Alley-Oop Was The Best Play In The National Championship’s Amazing First Half

Superstar backup Spike Albrecht notwithstanding, it was Montrezl Harrell’s gravity-defying dunk that served as game’s exclamation point so far.

1. After the first half of the NCAA National Championship, Michigan leads 38-37, largely thanks to the heroics of backup point guard Spike Albrecht.

2. After averaging 1.8 points per game during the season, Albrecht had 17 in the first half, leaving Rick Pitino and the rest of the Louisville Cardinals in disbelief.

3. Seriously: he has as many points tonight than he did in January and February COMBINED.

4. But despite the Albrecht fireworks, Louisville rallied behind four threes from Luke Hancock and this tremendous, gravity-defying alley-oop by Montrezl Harrell.
