Creighton’s Devin Brooks had pass of the year off backboard (GIF)
Creighton junior guard Devin Brooks brought us one of the highlights of the night from the college basketball world on Thursday, and he couldn’t do it again if he tried. That’s not to take anything away from Brooks’ skill set, but passes off the backboard to teammates standing behind the 3-point line don’t happen all that often.
With Creighton leading 60-50 midway through the second half, Brooks fired the ball toward the basket for what may have been a horrendous attempt at an alley-oop. It somehow deflected off the side of the backboard and directly into teammate Austin Chatman’s hands, who drained a three from the corner.
Brooks threw the ball so hard that it almost looked intentional, but there’s just no possible way. Hey, as long as it worked out.
