With Louisville locked in a tight battle with North Carolina on Saturday, Montrezl Harrell had arguably the biggest Cardinals highlight with his alley-oop in the second half of a 78-68 overtime win over the Tar Heels.

The pass from Louisville guard Chris Jones was errant, but Harrell used his 6-foot-8 frame to extend and catch onto the ball before finishing the slam.
