Michigan freshman Jordan Poole lit the world on fire last weekend against the Ohio State Buckeyes with 15 points off the bench, but what he did early on tonight against Penn State was from a different planet.
With Michigan up by seven points with about 4:30 left in the first half, Poole was the recipient of a pass after a turnover, ran it up the court, took it to the right side of the basket and laid down the hammer on a Nittany Lion defender. While delivering the slam dunk, he also drew a foul and made the free-throw to complete the three-point play.
Watch below to witness the bad-assery that is Jordan Poole.

It’s only February, but there’s a Poole party happening tonight. Too bad it’s all the way down in Pennsylvania.
