Rank UK’s Best Dunks From The Preseason


Big Blue Nation was treated to several electrifying dunks in the Cats’ three trial runs in Rupp Arena, beginning with the Blue-White scrimmage in mid-October and then against outside competition in friendlies against Clarion and Asbury.

The real action will begin against Stone Cold Stephen F. Austin on Friday, but before we lace ’em up for the regular season, why don’t we take a look back at the excitement of the preseason by naming a Slam Dunk Champion.

Below you’ll find ten nominees, selected by a panel of judges in the KSR office. It’s up to you, the KSR readers, to declare the Dunk of the Preseason.

Here are the candidates, in order of appearance…

    Monk can friggin rise, man. The only reason he didn’t win this was because he was competing against himself for 2 of the top 3.
