Did You See This? Illinois' Leonard

It’s no secret that Illinois’ Meyers Leonard is blessed with a lot of athleticism. The 7-foot-1 big man moves and leaps unlike most guys his size, and he displayed it once again Wednesday at Northwestern. Late in the first half – a frustrating one for Leonard and the Illini – the breakout sophomore jumped out of the gym on a one-handed slam. Look at how high he got up there. And listen to that rim rattle! As BTN color commentator Shon Morris put it: “I think that rim is going to file assault charges.” Watch the dunk now and see his game-sealing block in this post.

Leonard seals the win with this big block:

yes, I did see that!!!! But, I didn’t see the last 20 some odd seconds of the game due to the DVR stopping at what I can only assume was the scheduled end of the game, time wise. The last that I saw was Leonard getting ready to shoot a foul shot with a 1 point lead. I suspect that I’m not the only one. Glad I didn’t DVR the Illinois/Minnisota game that went two overtimes!
