WATCH: Texas F Christian Bishop drops the anvil with an alley-oop dunk

On Saturday, Texas basketball had the unenviable task of facing West Virginia in Morgantown. As you can imagine, it’s usually not a comfortable trip for Texas players.

Christian Bishop bucked trends and made himself at home with a highlight reel dunk. The play was the first of a series of back and forth offensive punches landed by each team.

Arterio Morris got the big play started with a transition steal as West Virginia attacked in the fast break. Morris sent an outlet pass ahead to Tyrese Hunter before Hunter lobbed a pass toward the basket. Bishop took care of the rest, sending the basketball home with authority.

Texas isn’t in the business of simply playing entertaining basketball. Albeit, its hard to argue that the team is not fun to watch since Rodney Terry took over.

There’s still plenty for the team to improve as the season progresses. Nevertheless, it’s encouraging to see Texas actively taking fast break points before opponents settle into half court defense.
