He won’t claim to the be the best player in the the nation, in fact, Victor Oladipo will say that his Indiana teammate Cody Zeller is better than him, but anyone with a pulse that has been watching college basketball this year cannot deny the greatness of junior guard in Bloomington. He put all his talents on display in Indiana’s thumping of Illinois in the Big Ten tournament quarterfinals, and delivered this thunderous 360 dunk.
Dipo, as the Indiana faithful refer to him, finished with 12 points on 50 percent shooting and collected 11 boards.
