WATCH: Tennessee’s Zakai Zeigler Shreds Defender in the Spin Cycle

    by -

    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.

    Zeigler ended the game with six points in his 12 minutes played. The freshman’s other three points also came via the three-point shot.

    With the win, Tennessee moves to 15-6 on the season and 6-3 in conference play this year.
