VIDEO: Syracuse's Scoop Jardine And CJ Fair Hit A Half-Court Alley-Oop

Syracuse's Scoop Jardine leads all scorers through one low-scoring, tightly-officiated half, but none of his paltry seven points have been as beautifully video game-esque as this very, very long assist to CJ Fair for a half-court alley-oop:

The alley-oop gave the Orange a 25-24 lead and broke a Syracuse scoring drought of almost three minutes. Ohio State would quickly take the lead back two possessions later. The Buckeyes opened the game on a 9-2 run — the biggest lead for either team in the first half. Neither team led by more than four points for 16 minutes of the first.
