When playing ball, and you want to have a "code name" for an alley oop, you say, "AO technolagee...".

Civil Definition (c/o Wikipedia)
An alley oop in basketball is an offensive play in which one player throws the ball up near the basket to a teammate (or, much more rarely, to himself) who jumps, catches the ball in mid air and immediately scores a basket, usually with a slam dunk remix. It is an impressive way to score and often electrifies the "spectators". The alley oop combines elements of teamwork, pin-point passing, timing, and drinking...I mean dunking.

History of the alley oop (c/o Wikipedia)
Some credit Al Tucker and his brother Gerald at Oklahoma Baptist University with being the first to use the alley oop in the mid-1960s. Others credit David Thompson as the first player to execute the classic alley oop play while at North Carolina State University, with his teammates Monte Towe and Tim Stoddard performing the neccesary lob passes. There can be no question however that it was NCSU's Thompson who popularized the play during the early 1970s - exploiting his 48-inch vertical leap to make the above-the-rim play a recurring staple in the Wolfpack's offensive attack. Because dunking was illegal in college basketball at that time, upon catching the alley oop pass, Thompson would simply drop the ball through the hoop - not dunking one of the passes until the final play of the final home game of his career. During the 1990s NBA stars turned the alley oop into the game's ultimate quick strike weapon. North Carolina State also won a national championship on probably the most famous alley oop play of all time against the University of Houston. With time running out and the score tied in the 1983 championship game in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Dereck Whittenburg threw a high, arching pass to Lorenzo Charles, who caught the ball and stuffed it through the net to win the title.
