Buffalo is a great Ncaa Tournament story.
The 13th-seeded Bulls stunned Arizona in the first round and have given five-star-laden Kentucky a real fight in the first half on Saturday.
That’s Hamidou Diallo — who’s technically a guard and is only 6’5 — creating a two-person poster on the same put-back dunk.
My heart goes out to the Bulls’ Nick Perkins and Dontay Caruthers , who didn’t deserve to have this happen to them.
Perkins is a listed 6’8 and probably won’t enjoy this highlight of a shorter guy throwing down on him.
Diallo is a former five-star recruit, playing his freshman season after technically redshirting last year.
That’s a brief preview of the kind of athleticism he’ll bring to the league.
