Slam Dekker: Great One-Handed Dunk

Wisconsin is known for its methodical offense, strong defense and significant homecourt advantage. It is not known for its play above the rim or for registering a bunch of jaw-dropping dunks. That wasn’t case in Saturday’s win over Illinois, when the Badgers totaled four huge dunks, including this Sam Dekker beauty. Watch all of Wisconsin’s big jams from Saturday and vote for your favorite in this post.

Did You See This? Cody Zeller dribble, drive & dunk

Cody Zeller

A Big Dunk for Zeller

Cody Zeller isn’t your typical big man. The Indiana sophomore runs the floor as well as anyone, almost regardless of height, and he can handle the ball, too. He showed the latter skill on a highlight-reel dunk in Saturday’s win over No. 10 Minnesota. And this one looked like a play a wing would make, as Zeller, from beyond the arc, penetrated and hammered it home. He even took a seat against the basket support after the poke. Watch the highlight now.

Brandon Paul Drives and Dunks

Last night, it was Sam Thompson putting A.J. Hammons on a poster (Watch it). Wednesday night, it was Brandon Paul doing it to Trevor Mbakwe. Paul’s posterizing flush was as impressive as any we’ve seen this year, but it also was a little controversial. The Illini senior was called for a charge on the play, and yet the bucket counted. Maybe because the dunk was just THAT good? Watch the slam now and see the Twitter reaction to it in this post.

Trevor Mbakwe gets swat, then big-time slam

Mbakwe Blocks and Dunks

Marilyn Indahl-USA TODAY Sports

It took Trevor Mbakwe most of the nonconference season to work his way back from last year’s season-ending knee surgery. Either that, or Tubby Smith just decided to bring him back slowly. It was probably the latter, come to think of it, but the sixth-year senior sure looks good now.

Tim Doyle Gets Burned by Bo Ryan

Let’s get two things out of the way here first: 1.) Bo Ryan gives pretty entertaining postgame interviews, ones often peppered with a joke or two; and 2.)

OK, now that that’s out of the way, it’s time to get to Ryan’s postgame interview with Doyle following Sunday’s 47-41 victory at Nebraska.

Kansas big man Jeff Withey leads the nation in blocks, averaging 5.4 swats per game entering Saturday’s game at Ohio State.

The Ohio State junior went at Withey and hammered home a left-handed slam in the first half of Saturday afternoon’s loss. Watch the dunk here.
