Sometimes you just end up at the right place at the right time on the basketball court. Even if you’re in that place sitting down. Nebraska’s Isaiah Roby made an impressive play Tuesday night against Wisconsin while on his backside.
After getting tangled up with a Badgers defender, Roby was on the ground, where he had an offensive rebound literally fall in his lap. He made a heads up play while sitting down as he found Anton Gill for an open 3-pointer which he knocked down.
The quirky and productive play landed Roby the No. 8 spot on SportsCenter’s top 10 plays.

Gill’s shot put the Huskers up by eight points and it was a crucial play in a game they won by four points, 63-59. Roby ended up with 8 rebounds and 2 assists in the win, and the Huskers have won five of their last six games.
