In his time with Ohio State basketball, Jae’Sean Tate made a name for himself with his defensive prowess and his all-out style of play. Tate brought that kind of play to the 3X3U college 3-on-3 basketball tournament on Sunday, helping the Big Ten team win the event.
In fact, Tate may have made the play of the entire tournament on Sunday, as the former Buckeye threw down a big, two-handed dunk after making a steal.

What makes the dunk more impressive is that Tate stole the ball and then had enough awareness to make sure both of his feet were behind the 2-point line to clear the ball. Oh yeah, and then he dunked the ball in traffic with some contact.
Along with Tate, the Big Ten team consisted of Purdue’s Vince Edwards, Minnesota’s Nate Mason and Indiana’s Robert Johnson.
With the tournament win, the four players earned $50,000 on top of the $5,000 they earned in previous wins in the tournament.
