VIDEO: Dazzling end-of-game reverse layup in traffic gives San Diego win

By Matt Norlander | College Basketball Writer

I'm going to enjoy watching you win, Mr. Anderson.

For the most part, it was a nondescript Monday night in college basketball -- until San Diego's Christopher Anderson got court-long in five seconds and twirled his team to a victory on the road against Loyola Marymount. (Head to the 1:30 mark in the video above to see Anderson's Matrix-like move.)

The San Diego sophomore who averages 9.5 points put up 13 at LMU, the final two being the decisive ones. His layup following the missed front end of a 1-and-1 from LMU's Anthony Ireland gave USD its first win since Jan. 15 and prevented the team from slipping under .500 in West Coast Conference play for the first time this season.

Pretty nifty -- and gutsy -- play. We've all done these kind of no-look, toss-it-over-your-shoulder layups from the comfort of our empty driveways or gyms. Quite another thing to do it in traffic with the game on the line. Anderson did, and came up big with Toreros star Johnny Dee -- he could very well be a big deal by about this time next year -- out of the game due to a bum ankle.
