Zakai Zeigler hit one of the smoothest moves in transition against A&M on Tuesday.
During a routine carry down the court in the first half, a Texas A&M defender was matching Zeigler’s path step-for-step. However, as the freshman guard crossed halfcourt, Zeigler changed direction, sending the Aggie player in a 360-degree spin cycle as he fell down flying backward onto the court.
Tennessee’s crowd erupted with noise after Zeigler hit the juke, which then immediately turned into a pull-up three-pointer in transition.
