who is that masked man

Iowa split two games with Ohio State in a doubleheader on Saturday, dropping a 2-1 encounter in the early game before bouncing back with some offensive firepower in a 9-5 win in the nightcap. That early loss did feature one of Iowa's best defensive plays of the year, though, courtesy of Lorenzo Elion. Elion was error-prone in the field early in the season, but if he can produce some defense like this he'll be tough to unseat from the hot corner. 

The play was so good it made the Top 10 Plays of the Day on SportsCenter last night: 

We'll even overlook the fact that the anchor on the call refers to Iowa as "Iowa State" at the end of that clip. 

Well done, Mr. Elion.
