The 13 Best Midnight Madness Dunks of 2011Posted by rtmsf on October 16th, 2011
It wouldn’t be Midnight Madness without a dunk contest (or a hundred), so we fished around to find the 13 best dunks from the opening weekend’s many extravaganzas. There are some impressive flushes here, but nothing like Keion Bell’s record-breaker from last season, so if you know of something better send it to us @rushthecourt or email@example.com for inclusion.
#13.75. Another late addition — Rhode Island’s Jonathan “Sponge” Holton soaking up all kinds of nasty with this 360.
#13.5. A late addition (sent from reader, Dennis) — Reggie Smith of UNLV uses all 5’9″ of his frame to get after this one. Unreal.
#13. Mitchell Watt of Buffalo Performs the Very Difficult Two-Ball Dunk.
#12. Marshall’s Justin Coleman Completes an Impossible Side-Backboard 360 (stick with it).
#11. White Men CAN Jump! (Duke’s Miles Plumlee Over His Brother).
#10. The Involvement of People in Farm Animal Costumes is Always Worthwhile (Minnesota’s Rodney Williams).
#9. Baylor’s Pierre Jackson Off the Side of the Glass.
#8. Alex Lewis at D-II Angelo State Receives an Assist From the Crowd With His Dunk.
#7. Six-foot-nothing Austin Chatman Goes Up and Over Seven-Footer Geoff Groselle at Creighton.
#6. UConn Phenom Andre Drummond Through the Legs Into a Windmill — This Guy is Ridiculous.
#5. Wagner’s Josh Thompson Uses His Own Mother as a Prop.
#4. Baylor’s Deuce Bello with the Explosive 360.
#3. New Mexico’s Jamal Fenton Brings a Backflip to the Party.
#2. Andre Drummond Again, Superman Off the Side of the Board.
#1. Memphis’ Will Barton Catches the Lob and Simultaneously Jumps Over Two Teammates Before Throwing It Down
Bonus: Andre Drummond’s Missed Dunk From the Foul Line Was Still Impressive.
