Wisconsin's Sam Dekker topped the 1,000-point mark with a huge putback slam. Check it out in this post!
D.J. Newbill knows how to get himself on the national highlight shows. Whether it’s with a highlight dunk or a cold-blooded game-winner, Newbill is no stranger to compiling the impressive play. The Penn State star showed that again in Monday afternoon’s 69-49 win over Dartmouth, driving for a buzzer-beating dunk to end the first half. Not only was this a rare buzzer-beating dunk, but Newbill also put the poor Dartmouth defender on a poster.
Troy Williams is a highlight machine. We all know this. Well, the Indiana sophomore put on, perhaps, his best high-flying act Monday night.
Wisconsin's Frank Kaminsky had a great Twitter conversation with the guard who almost dunked over him. See here!
Truth: Big Ten fans are going to enjoy watching Maryland star senior Dez Wells. The preseason Wooden Award candidate is one of the game’s elite finishers, and he showed it in Monday night’s 93-57 victory over Central Connecticut State. Early in the second half, Wells, from behind the 3-point line, drove to the basket and exploded for a powerful tomahawk dunk that delighted his teammates and all of the fans at the Xfinity Center. Wells finished the game with 27 points, on 10 of 15 from the field.

Prediction: This isn’t the last time we’ll spotlight a James Blackmon Jr. highlight. The heralded Indiana freshman drove and soared for a poster dunk in Monday night’s scrimmage vs. Indianapolis at Assembly Hall. Blackmon loved the dunk. His teammates loved the dunk. Indiana fans loved the dunk. Check out the highlight in the video above. Another exciting Indiana freshman, Robert Johnson, had a nice highlight Monday, too. Check out it below. Robert Johnson does it all (rebound, lead break, finish) on this @IndianaMBB play. http://t.co/MSfL2vIIwl — Indiana on BTN (@BTN_Indiana) November 11, 2014
All Big Ten basketball fans know Glenn Robinson and son Glenn Robinson III had skills on the hardwood. The former is one of the Big Ten’s greatest of all times, while the latter was a second-round pick in the June NBA draft. So, son/brother Gelen Robinson should be at home on the basketball court, right? See a video of Gelen, a freshman on the Purdue football team, dunk in this post.

The NBA held its annual rookie photo shoot over the weekend in New York City. There were plenty of photos taken, of course, but there was also a lot of fun had while the players waited their turns in front of the camera. There was an impromptu dunk contest, among other things, and former Michigan forward Mitch McGary easily threw down the best dunk. Check out our other Gone Viral moments: Here’s the proof: McGary and his former Michigan teammates Glenn Robinson III and Nik Stauskas also did this: Challenge goes out to all rookies on this one! My boy
Rodney Williams made a living out of destroying rims during his Minnesota career. It’s good to know the high-flyer is still up to his old tricks.
