There won't be a better inbounds play this season than the one the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors ran early in the first half of Saturday night's game against the UC Irvine Anteaters.

Catching the defense off guard, Hawaii guard Roderick Bobbitt fed a perfect lob to teammate Aaron Valdes, who had flown through the paint on the inbounds pass. By the time UC Irvine's 6'10" Jonathan Galloway attempted to defend the alley-oop, it was too late to stop Valdes.

That poster is going to look pretty sweet on his wall.

Valdes put up 13 points and six rebounds in the 75-71 victory.
