Following the first five plays of the 2019-20 season, the list continued with the top five plays. The remaining portion featured appearances from Kenny Wooten on SportsCenter’s Top 10 to Kadeem Allen coming up in the clutch and more.
Here’s a look back at the top plays (10-6) of the season.
5. Great Sequence From Tyler Hall
Following a cutting layup by Tyler Hall, he grabbed the steal as Trevon Bluiett attempted to inbounds the ball. Hall deflected the ball to the corner where he drained a three and was fouled. He made the free throw to complete the four-point play. The rookie guard finished with 24 points on 9-of-14 shooting from the field and 5-of-9 from deep.
4. SportsCenter Appearance
In the closing moments of the first quarter, Sheldon Mac attempted to drive to the rim for the final points of the first quarter. Kenny Wooten rejected Mac’s layup attempt and the Canton Charge didn’t convert on the final possession of the opening frame. Not only was this the first time a Westchester Knick was featured on SC’s Top 10, but it wasn’t the last time Wooten was seen on ESPN.
3. Kadeem Allen In The Clutch
Westchester trailed the Iowa Wolves by six points heading into the fourth quarter and kept cutting at their deficit as the final frame progressed. Iowa held a 123-122 lead with 47 seconds left in the game. Kadeem Allen drove and finished with a floating bank shot, which gave the Knicks the lead and the eventual victory. Allen scored the final seven points and finished with 24 points.
2. Ignas Brazdeikis Threads The Needle To J.J. Moore
Early in the team’s game against the Maine Red Claws, Jaysean Paige missed a fadeaway jumper. Ignas Brazdeikis grabbed the rebound, brought the ball up, and fired a bounce pass through two Maine defenders to J.J. Moore who finished with the finger roll. This superb pass was one of five assists from Brazdeikis, while Moore finished with 21 points.
1. SC’s Top 10 Is Top Play
Kenny Wooten totaled 98 blocks in his rookie season with Westchester, but this block was something different. As Xavier Munford drove to the rim, Wooten picked him up and pinned his layup attempt against the backboard, which brought the Westchester crowd to their feet. This block was the No. 3 play on SportsCenter’s Top 10. He finished the game with seven blocks.
