Xavier's Jalen Reynolds Knocks Seton Hall Defender to Ground on Poster Dunk

Kyle NewportFeatured ColumnistFebruary 28, 2016

When 6'10", 232-pound Xavier Musketeers forward Jalen Reynolds attacks the hoop, opposing defenders would be wise to concede the two points and get out of the way.

Otherwise, they will end up like Seton Hall Pirates guard Isaiah Whitehead (6'4", 210 pounds).

Late in the second half of Sunday's game, the Musketeers got out in transition with Reynolds trailing the ball-handler, Myles Davis. When Davis dropped the ball back to Reynolds, Whitehead stepped in and tried to draw a charge—and he probably has a mark to prove it.

Whitehead not only got knocked to the ground, but he also got whistled for a foul. Reynolds made the ensuing free throw to complete the three-point play and cut Seton Hall's lead to 75-64.

Other than this play, it was a good day for the Pirates. Seton Hall upset No. 5 Xavier, 90-81, and Whitehead posted 22 points, five assists and four blocks.
