But while they make for great action photos, it would serve Long well to quit making jump passes unless absolutely necessary. There's a reason for that: those are high-risk moves. In the last NBA Finals, for instance, 25 of the 156 turnovers came from jump passes. That's a whopping 16 percent of the combined miscues of the Mavericks and the Heat.
Meanwhile, here's one play the Blue Eagles should keep running: Greg Slaughter dunks! It would be great if he could get some measure of revenge against the three teams that voted to keep him from playing this season. He has already dunked on La Salle; he meets UE this Saturday, then FEU at the end of the first round.
Here's Long against NU on 21 July 2011.
