ANIMATED: Cincinnati's Justin Jackson Unkind To Aaron Craft

Aaron Craft is one of the best defenders in the country but early on in Ohio State's Sweet 16 matchup against Cincinnati, he was on the other end of an amazingly athletic defensive play by the Bearcats' Justin Jackson. Craft, off a steal no less, got out on the break and appeared to be heading in for an easy layup over Cashmere Wright. But Jackson came flying in from nowhere for an emphatic block. Jackson then got another "chasedown" on Lenzelle Smith later on in the half.
