Video: Abdul-Malik Abu’s vicious put-back slam

It’s not easy to do this.

NCAA Basketball: North Carolina State at Illinois Mike Granse-USA TODAY Sports

If you needed a reminder, Abdul-Malik Abu can jump for miles and he is pretty athletic. Depending on how a game is going for him, this is not always apparent. Against Fairfield on Sunday, it was extremely apparent.

Woooooooooooo buddy can I get some more of that please. Abu cuts for the hoop as Terry Henderson shoots the ball, and Fairfield’s Jonathan Kasibabu has his eyes on Henderson, letting Abu get the jump on him. It’s already over at that point, it’s just a matter of how and where Abu claims the rebound.

He claimed it rather loudly, which is fine by me. Abu played a really solid game on Sunday. We’re gonna need that pretty much every night beginning very soon.
