Hampton’s Darrion Pellum Throws Down A Nasty Self-Alley-Oop (Video)

darrion pellumIf you have never heard of the Hampton Pirates or their senior guard, Darrion Pellum, I don’t blame you.  After all, most people probably don’t even know that the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference exists within Division-I NCAA basketball.

However, it may not be long before the name Darrion Pellum becomes a lot more familiar following his performance during last night’s game against the Maryland-Eastern Shore Hawks, as he recorded a game-high 33-points during his team’s 82-62 victory.  But it isn’t his scoring output that will catch the attention of most.  Instead, it is the manner in which he scored two of his 33 points with 8:30 remaining in the game.

With his team already leading by a score of 60-44 at that point, Pellum stripped the ball from an unsuspecting Hawks player before taking it the length of the court and throwing it off the backboard for the nasty self-alley-oop.

Some might argue that this is not as impressive as it seems, seeing as how it came against a team like the Maryland-Eastern Shore Hawks.  I’d argue that most players probably couldn’t even perform a dunk of this magnitude against a team of 10-year-olds.
