WATCH: Perry County Central’s Damon Tobler throws down crazy dunk at Sweet 16

Screen Shot 2017-03-15 at 1.45.00 PM

If you’re not at Rupp Arena for today’s Sweet 16, then you missed this insane dunk by Perry County Central senior and David Ortiz lookalike Damon Tobler. Ultimately, the bucket didn’t count because the refs called a charge, but my goodness:

Some more looks:

Hopefully this will help Tobler land a scholarship somewhere. He’s certainly got the hops.

    That kid was in the cylinder. Should’ve been an and-1 dunk IMO. Nasty stuff either way.

      That cylinder doesn’t exist in high school basketball unfortunately.

      That’s an offensive foul everytime

    That is some bush league Kentucky high school officiating right there. That hasn’t changed since I played. Athletic players get charging and over the back calls like crazy. It holds the game back in this state and it’s so annoying.

    Don’t want to rain on anyone’s parade but just being able to jump is not enough to earn a scholarship. Also if you’re a random adult watching the sweet sixteen tournament and you’re not getting paid for it, or you don’t have a kid on any team then we need to talk…

      So, do you also need to talk to a random adult watching the NCAAT who isn’t getting paid for it or doesn’t have a kid on any team? Where do you draw the line? And what would you discuss with this random adult?

    2. lexwildcat859

      I draw the line at major college sports. I wouldn’t go to a high school basketball tournament same reason I wouldn’t go watch a middle school basketball tournament.

      Then don’t go and mind your own business. If people want to go they will go. And they don’t need to have a talk with you to do so chief.

      Sorry but I totally disagree with you. I know a lot of people who go up and watch the entire state tournament every year and have for decades. For some people they enjoy watching the games whether or not they have a kid on the team. What is the difference in doing that and going to the NCAA or SEC tournament to watch UK. Just about every UK fan there isn’t getting paid to be there or don’t have a kid on the team?

    5. lexwildcat859

      Are you trying to compare major college sports, a billion dollar industry that depends on fans not students, to a high school basketball tournament?

    6. Cats or Die

      LOL there is literally not a single reason for watching collegiate sports that you couldn’t apply to high school sports. Cracker Barrel would classify you sir as an ig-nor-a-moose.

      Alumni of the school, state/community/region pride, you just enjoy the sport, etc. are all applicable to both.

      If HS bball more marketable and could charge a lot of money for tickets and tv coverage, rhen it would be ok? You’re not making sense.

  6. meeksfor3

    The SEC is on the phone with that official right now trying to lock him up for next season.

    Kid wouldn’t have touched the rim on the dunk if he hadn’t have jumped off of the kid taking the charge, but good use of your resources!

  8. Mathlete

    Oh man… that was a massacre

  9. lexwildcat859

    HS basketball isn’t marketable nor could it make a lot of money from tickets or tv coverage because NO ONE CARES ABOUT HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL that’s the point. Rupp arena isn’t 70% empty during sweet sixteen games because the tickets are hard to find. Empty because it’s an event for family and friends. Do you go to middle school games too?

    Whole thing wouldn’t have happened if the nearest ref had noticed Tobler totally double-dribbled at the other end. Watch it again. He gets the outlet, puts the ball on the floor, waits a sec, then starts upcourt. Still, a great dunk for anyone from Matt Jones’ part of the state.
