Watch This Awesome Assist by Ohio's D.J. Cooper

Jeff Curry-US PRESSWIRE

During Ohio's 73-50 win versus Eastern Michigan on Feb 20th, 'Cats star point guard D.J. Cooper had 10 recorded assists, then there was this one.

During Ohio's 73-50 beat down Eastern Michigan on Feb. 20th, Ohio point guard D.J. Cooper shined. Cooper is quickly ascending the NCAA's leader board for career assists and notched 10 in that game to move him into a then tie for No. 13 all-time. Since then he's continued to climb despite some less-than-stellar performances.

But on that night Cooper was dishing it out like no one else. He was finding guys on plays that seemed impossible, making jaw-dropping dish after jaw-dropping dish. He finished the game with 10 on the record, but there was one right before the second half started that didn't make it into the stat sheet.

It happened during a halftime phone-a-friend competition where some "lucky" fan gets to walk around blindfolded while their friend tries to give them directions on the phone to where Rufus (Ohio's mascot) is hiding. It's incredibly goofy. With all the commotion going on in the stands the fan often stumbles around like a fool just trying to hear their friend.

This night Cooper had already connected on eight dimes in the first half and was obviously in a giving mood. The aforementioned contest was going on as Cooper took the court to start the second half. Right as the guys time was running out Cooper grabbed the fans hand and directed him right to a crouching Rufus.

Thanks to Ohio University student Jenna Veard for the footage.
