Best college basketball dunkers
Deuce Bello, Quincy Acy and Perry Jones, Baylor – No school boasts a trio of showmen as impressive as the ones at Baylor.
Harrison Barnes, North Carolina – Barnes’ leadership and basketball IQ are some of the main reasons he’s projected as an NBA lottery pick.
Rodney Williams, Minnesota – With a 6.8-point scoring average, Williams was hardly one of the top threats on Minnesota’s roster last season.
Jared Cunningham, Oregon State – Once he stopped screaming, a television announcer wasn’t exaggerating all that much when he said the 6-foot-4 Cunningham “kissed the sky” during a tip-dunk off a teammate’s miss last season.
Andre Dawkins, Duke – Remember that dunk by Mason Plumlee we talked about earlier? Impressive as it was, Plumlee didn’t even win the Blue Devils’ dunk contest that night. Dawkins did.
Elijah Johnson, Kansas
Terrence Jones, Kentucky – It’s hard not to admire the fire and aggression of Jones
Kyle Kuric, Louisville – A 6-foot-4 guard, Kuric averaged 10.8 points for a surprising Louisville squad last season.
DeQuan Jones, Miami – Jones has been regarded as one of the nation’s top dunkers for several years now.
Jared Sullinger, Ohio State – Sullinger may tip the scales at 280 pounds, but that doesn’t do anything to limit his coordination and leaping ability.
LeBryan Nash, Oklahoma State – Anyone who watched the dunk contest at the McDonald’s All-American game last spring has to be excited about Nash, who won the event.
