Film Session: Northwestern
Here Blackmon Jr. comes through with Vic Law as Law passes to Sobolewski:

As we’ll see as this Film Session goes along, Indiana did some other pointing on defense to little effect. Perhaps Blackmon Jr. thought someone would be guarding space on that side of the court and was looking for help to cover. In any event, no one was there, he made no effort to get out on Law and he had a clean look he knocked down.
