The alley-oop combines elements of teamwork, pinpoint passing, timing and finishing.

The term “alley-oop” is derived from the French term allez hop!, the cry of a circus acrobat about to leap. The term Alley Oop was first popularized in the US in 1932 as the name of a syndicated comic strip created by cartoonist V. T. Hamlin. In sports the term “alley-oop” first appeared in the 1950s by the San Francisco 49ers of the NFL to describe a high arcing pass from quarterback Y. A. Tittle to wide receiver R.C. Owens, who would outleap smaller cornerbacks for touchdown receptions (“The Catch”, the Dwight Clark touchdown reception from Joe Montana by which the 49ers gained entry into their first Super Bowl, was also an “alley-oop” pass) and later became better known from its use in basketball.
