Earlier this summer, the Kentucky Basketball team showed off an elaborate pool dunk while hanging out at John Calipari’s house. Since then, teams across the country have followed suit, most recently, the Arkansas Razorbacks. Whose pool dunk reigns supreme? Let’s break down the contenders.
First up, Kentucky, as orchestrated by Immanuel Quickley, Ashton Hagans, Nate Sestina, EJ Montgomery, and Tyrese Maxey:

Not bad, not bad. A few weeks later, Chris Mack’s Louisville Cardinals turned in their version:

I hate the Cards, but bonus points for the use of the slide.
Arkansas went above any beyond for their video, throwing the ball off the balcony and kicking it like a soccer ball:

I should have said this earlier, but please don’t try this at home.
