English to French translations [PRO]
English term or phrase: Alley-oop
When a player jumps high to catch another players pass and then drops it in the basket!
Explanation: Basketball is an American sport, and numerous players in the french-speaking world are American and a lot of terms are carried over and keep the English equivalent. My husband did the stats for a professional French team (Pro B) for 8 years. I hope this helps.
