Ohio State's 5'9 point guard chased a guy down from behind and BLOCKED his shot

The Buckeyes' diminutive A.J. Harris knows that height ain't nothing but a number.

A.J. Harris is rapidly warming his way into the hearts of Ohio State Buckeye basketball aficionados everywhere.

Listed at 5'9 -- and given that he was about an inch-and-a-half to two inches shorter than Kentucky's Tyler Ulis, who is also listed at 5'9, probably not even that tall -- Harris zooms around the court at what seems like a hundred miles an hour.

From the offensive end of the court to the defensive side of things, Harris would win hearts and minds on the Ohio State football practice field as well with his A-to-B relentless effort, straight of Urban Meyer's playbook.

During Sunday's game against South Carolina State, Harris did what he did best.

He turned on the jets, followed an opposing player down the hardwood, and well ... You watch the rest:

That member of the Bulldog basketball team may as well retire.

Good on you, A.J. Keep doing what you do best.
