Kyle Thomas Rises For the Alley Oop Jam

We hit the hardwood for the Play of the Week for boys basketball with Benet Academy taking on Marian Central Catholic and Redwing Kyle Thomas shows his skills above the rim. Presented by Trunnell Insurance.

Benet Academy begins the New Year taking their home court for only the second time this season. The Redwings come in to this matchup after a fourth place finish in the Pontiac Holiday Tournament taking on Marian Central Catholic a team that went 2-1 in the Hinkle Holiday Classic.

Nikola Abusara brings it up the court and puts it up top for Kyle Thomas who throws down the two-handed alley oop slam. Let’s see it again as the 6’10” 230-pound senior shows off his vertical. What a finish.

The Wings keep their foot on the gas pedal. A dominating performance by Benet Academy gives them a 90-43 victory.

Each week the NCTV17 sports team selects a boy and girl Play of the Week from the high school sports competitions we cover. Those plays are then eligible for our Play of the Month competition in which you, our viewers, can vote for your favorite.
