Women's basketball player inbounds ball off defender's back to win game

Thursday January 29th, 2015

Lafayette trailed Colgate 42-19 at halftime of a Patriot League women's basketball game on Wednesday and needed a little trickery to cap off the comeback.

Junior guard Jamie O'Hare took advantage of an oblivious defender on a late inbounds pass, throwing the ball off the opponent's back. O'Hare caught her own pass and hit a nifty over-the-shoulder layup for what ended up being the last basket of the game.
