    The video of Poythress vs Wisky doesn’t do that dunk justice.

    WCS had a nasty one handed dunk last year….forget against who, but he began on the left wing, dribbled like a bolt of lightning into the paint and stretched for a left handed dunk. It left an impression with me because of how quickly the 7 footer could dribble and move, and because he was so far away from the basket when he dunked it. (Sorry…just don’t remember who it was against)

      I remember the exact dunk you are referring to, but can’t remember what game it was either.

      I’m pretty sure that one was Auburn on the road. Also anyone remember Dominique Hawkins’ lob catch and dunk in garbage time this season? I can’t recall who it was against.

    That James Young one was maybe the nastiest dunk in KY history.

    For the records, I’d like to point out that Andrew set-up the dunker in 3 of the eight dunks shown.

    The James young dunk might be the best in ncaa history, so I think the choice is obvious.
