WATCH: Buffalo mop boy almost gets run over

Mop boys might be the most important part of the basketball game that people don't pay attention to, but in this case one was front and center. In a game between Buffalo and Kent State, Buffalo junior Rodell Wigginton got a steal before the mop boy on the other end was ready for it.

The mop boy made Wigginton miss the layup, but it was all good because Buffalo won 80-55.
