Kansas won its third straight game over a ranked opponent on Monday night, defeating No. 24 Baylor at Allen Fieldhouse. Freshman guard Wayne Selden Jr. scored seven points in the 78-68 victory, but his most impressive play was an assist.
With the Jayhawks leading 51-44 midway through the second half, Selden chased after a loose ball and dove into the stands to save it. Not only did he keep the play alive, he somehow got the ball directly to Joel Embiid, who hit a nice little turnaround jumper.
As The Big Lead noted, a still frame of the play appears to show that Selden’s foot was out of bounds when he saved the ball.
We’re glad the refs didn’t pick up on that, because any player who does something like this deserves credit for it.
