The choices were Branden Dawson, Sam Dekker, Sam Thompson and Troy Williams. The final answers revealed that Dawson received 40 percent of the votes, giving him the slight edge over Thompson, who accounted for 33 percent of the votes.

Well, Dawson rewarded those who voted for him on Tuesday night with a huge alley-oop slam in Michigan State's commanding 68-44 win over Northwestern at Welsh-Ryan Arena.

"He dunks angry," said BTN analyst Jim Jackson in reference to Dawson's thunderous slam.
