On any given night, a montage of Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan dunks, LeBron and D-Wade fast break motion pictures or anything Jeremy Lin related would deserve a post around these parts. But it’s not everyday my alma mater, Hampton University, receives this amount of mainstream love and I’ll just strike while the iron is hot. Senior guard Darrion Pellum made #1 on SportsCenter’s Top 10 highlights by channeling his inner Tracy McGrady with defensive pressure leading to an alley oop to himself against MEAC rival University of Maryland-Eastern Shore. It probably doesn’t count in the stat sheet, but a case should be made Pellum should be credited with not only a steal and made field goal, but an assist as well.
Hampton’s had attendance issues since I was there, but fact still remains buddy had an impressive play (he finished the night with 33 points); one deserving of the accolades. And excuse the lack of volume with the clip. That should provide provide all the motivation to add your own call if you’re bored in the office, stuck on the train or wherever you happen to be watching this video from. Darrion, they better treat you like a king at 12-2 on Friday. Hampton folks know I’m talking about.
