Video: Rodney Williams soars for D-League dunk

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. Williams, a member of the Delaware 87ers of the NBA D-League, soared for a powerful one-handed dunk Friday night that was featured on the league’s YouTube channel. Check out the dunk in this post.

Did You See This? Mbakwe dunks, Paul responds

Minnesota’s Trevor Mbakwe threw down an incredible dunk in the second half of the opening game of the Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament against Illinois  then Illinois’ Brandon Paul responded with a nice move at the other end of the court.

Video: Rodney Williams' best slam dunk?

Four days after showing the basketball world how high he can get up, Rodney Williams decided to show everyone how long he can hang in the air. Spoiler alert: It’s a LONG time. At the end of the first half of the Penn State-Minnesota game on Saturday, Williams defied gravity, once again, with his latest highlight-reel alley-oop. Watch the dunk here. [ RELATED: Want to embed video? Here’s how! ] Anyone else notice how Williams almost paused in the air? He hit his apex, yet stayed there as he reached back with his left arm – the same one that’s

Better block: Rodney Williams or Eric May?

The last two nights in the Big Ten have provided college basketball fans with two exciting upsets and a pair of the more impressive blocked shots of the season. On Tuesday night, it was Rodney Williams jumping out of the gym to block a final-minute Victor Oladipo 3-pointer. And tonight, it was Eric May coming from behind to swat Terone Johnson in the final minute. Which block was better? Watch both in this post and vote below. And here’s Williams’ block from Tuesday night: Now that you’ve seen both, it’s time to vote. My answer: Rodney Williams, and it isn’t

Up, up and away: Williams soars for big-time swat

Everybody knows Minnesota’s Rodney Williams can jump. He’s one of the nation’s elite dunkers, after all. In Tuesday night’s upset over No. 1 Indiana, Williams showed off his ups on the defensive end. And the athletic senior’s block of Victor Oladipo’s late 3 was just as pretty as any of his highlight dunks. Watch Williams soar to block Oladipo’s shot in the final minute of the upset here.

Did You See This? Rodney Williams alley-oop

Since his 360 slam in mid-December, Rodney Williams has been uncharacteristically quiet on the jaw-dropping dunk front. He’s had his share of slams (watch in our Dunk Archive), but nothing to the level we’re accustom to. That changed Wednesday at Northwestern, when Williams was on the receiving end of a nice alley-oop. To be honest, the pass, from Joe Coleman, might have been as pretty as the dunk. Watch it now.

Did You See This? Rodney Williams 360 slam

He did it again. High-flying Rodney Williams delighted the Williams Arena crowd Tuesday night, this time with another highlight-reel 360 slam. Remember this 360 from last season? Well, this full revolution was just as sweet – yes, even if Williams didn’t stick the landing.

Rodney Williams channels inner Blake Griffin

Put Minnesota’s Rodney Williams in a dunk contest against pretty much anyone, and he’s going to hold his own. What about 2011 NBA Dunk Contest winner Blake Griffin? Who knows how the Minnesota junior would fair against arguably the best dunker, but BTN color commentator Eddie Johnson made this interesting comment about one of Williams’ two highlight-reel jams Saturday: “That had Blake Griffin written all over it.” You know what? It did — only Williams actually dunked it. Watch Williams’ ridiculous jam now and compare it to Griffin’s in this post. Also, watch Williams’ alley-oop Saturday in this post. And

Gophers' Williams slams home missed 3-pointer

It came in a losing effort, but Minnesota high-flyer Rodney Williams struck again Tuesday night. The Gopher junior put back a Julian Welch missed 3-pointer in a way only Rodney Williams can in Minnesota’s 78-68 defeat against No. 6 Ohio State. The left-handed rebound-throwdown came in the final minute with Ohio State up 11 points, so it’s very possible Williams caught the Buckeyes thinking about everything but boxing out on a late trey. Even if no one was on the court with Williams, this is a play that will make all the highlight shows. Watch the putback now and see

Dienhart: Q&A with Rodney Williams

Is there a more electric player in the Big Ten than Minnesota’s Rodney Williams? Of course not. The 6-7, 200-pound junior forward from Minneapolis is a human highlight film, seemingly executing one jaw-dropping, make-your-heart pound dunk every game. Like, for instance, the 360-degree one in this post. Williams also may be the top player on a Golden Gopher squad looking to augment its NCAA tourney resume as it takes on Wisconsin in a big game on tonight. Williams paces Minnesota in scoring (10.5), rebounding (5.3) and steals (1.5). And, because of those mesmerizing dunks, Williams also leads the team in
