One behind-the-back pass leading to a layup? Ehhh, no big deal. Two behind-the-back passes on the same play leading to a layup? OK, Buffalo, now you've managed to grab our attention.
The Bulls pulled off that rare feat in the first half of its victory over Western Michigan on Wednesday night. Guard Jarod Oldham fed guard Shannon Evans, who shoveled the ball behind his back to forward Justin Moss for as aesthetically pleasing a transition layup as anyone has delivered this season.
Buffalo will need more plays like that to keep pace in the MAC's perennially strong East Division. The Bulls (11-6, 5-2) trail first-place Akron by one game.
