Tim Hardaway Jr. put himself in the mix for best dunk of conference tournament week with an eye-popping alley-oop jam over top of Wisconsin’s Mike Bruesewitz in Friday’s Big Ten Tournament quarterfinal matchup.
Eight minutes into the game, Michigan point guard Trey Burke threw a lob to Hardaway from a good 10 or 12 feet outside the 3-point arc. Hardaway did the rest, soaring over Bruesewitz and throwing it down.
Hardaway briefly left the game in the first half after turning his ankle on a drive to the basket. He returned just a few minutes later.
