Sometimes, the best dunks come from the lower divisions of college basketball. Like on Wednesday, when Darrion Pellum put the Ham right back in Hampton, where it belongs. Pellum found himself one-on-one with a bad angle to the hoop on a break, and did the only logical thing.
He threw the ball off the backboard to himself.
There are few better ways to make a defender look foolish than by completely taking away their angle with a move out of the blue. And that's what Pellum did: his toss off the backboard left the defender looking around bewildered, wondering where the ball, and Pellum, went.
Of course, he had to finish the play, which he did with ease. Video after the jump.
Probably the best play and dunk of the night. This wasn't a showtime alley-oop on a break; Pellum was being legitimately defended, in a way, as he pulled off the move. Not bad, young fella.
