Mussini pours in a season-high 24 points

SJU's Federico Mussini cuts to the bucket, receives a dime from Yankuba Sima and drops in the And-1 floater in the Johnnies' 100-93 win over Chaminade. Bill Walton was impressed.


Ben Simmons' highlight reel

He may only be a freshman, and the season may be less than a month old, but the LSU phenom has easily made enough great plays to star in his own highlight reel.


Missed dunk shatters backboard

Dontavious Smith went NBA Jam on this backboard at UMass Lowell. The proof that he wasn't actually a character that was "on fire"? He missed.

Bahamas: Beautiful locale, ugly hoops
