Arizona’s Aaron Gordon Throws Down Monster Alley Oop
In case you were unaware, Arizona freshman forward Aaron Gordon is pretty good at basketball.
Not only is he a dominant force for the Wildcats, but he’s an explosive athlete who enjoys showing off his natural abilities from time to time. During Arizona’s win over San Diego State on Thursday night, Gordon had yet another opportunity to drop jaws around the country with a ridiculous alley oop.
I won’t try to describe Gordon’s latest feat, though. I’ll let you see for yourself.
Wow. Gordon can jump. Really, really high.
Now that’s the type of athleticism that turns top college basketball players in lottery picks. Especially with the 2014 NBA Draft only a few months away and Gordon expected to be among the top big men available on draft day, this latest showcase of his acrobatic skills should only give scouts more reason to move him up their draft boards.
Luckily for us, the Wildcats’ latest victory ensures more opportunities for Gordon to produce rim rattlers like this latest one. Arizona will square off on Saturday against No. 2 Wisconsin, a team that many believe lacks elite athleticism. If Gordon can get going early and get some solid setups from teammates Nick Johnson and T.J. McConnell, there’s a good chance that more sparks will fly.
In the meantime, though, enjoy this latest alley oop courtesy of the Arizona acrobat. Gordon has been terrorizing defenses all season long with his outstanding combination of size and athleticism. Expect more of the same come Saturday.
