It has been a long week for everyone, but a relatively slow news weekend as far as our beloved Wildcats goes. So, how about we head into the upcoming week with a sneak peek into the Joe Craft center to see what Kentucky is up to.
The good folks who run the Kentucky Twitter account gave us a little gem of B.J. Boston today, where he strips Jacob Toppin and takes it the other way.

Now, it’s Jacob Toppin’s turn. While this appeared to be after practice, it certainly looks like Jacob is staking his claim as the best dunker in the family. Watch him get up and put his head on the rim in this clip.

We’ve heard about his dunking ability from Terrence Clarke and others, including Toppin himself.
Who wins a Kentucky dunk contest? Terrence Clarke (a leading contender himself) says of Jacob Toppin: “His bounce is ridiculous." Says he's seen him take two steps and do crazy things. Isaiah Jackson super bouncy too. Throws BJ Boston in the mix. Gives the edge to Toppin.

How high can Jacob Toppin jump and are the stories exaggerated? "The stories are not exaggerated. I surprise myself sometimes. I'm looking inside the rim every time I dunk." Said his 40-year-old dad can still dunk. Runs in family. Obi dunks harder, "but I have more tricks."

Now we have even more evidence.
Here’s a clip of him windmill dunking over his 6’9 older brother, Obi, back in June.
