The Best Dunk of Texas Tech’s First Round Didn’t Even Count
Texas Tech basketball scored 97 points to beat Montana State this afternoon, but it was a bucket in the final minute, that didn't even count, that stole the show.
With Texas Tech leading 97-60 with just over 20 second left, Chibuzo Agbo Corraled a loose ball and kicked it up the floor to Mylik Wilson.
Wilson took two steps then took off like a rocket and spun 360 degrees for the monster slam dunk. Unfortunately, the dunk was called off because of an alleged travel, but the highlight remains.
Just watch the athleticism in motion.
The best part of the video might not even be the dunk itself. It's not the steal by Agbo either. It's the celebration of Terrence Shannon Jr. who finished the game with 20 points and Adonis Arms who finished with 15. Both of those players know a thing or two about electrifying dunks so to see them react like they did show you the kind of high-flying spectacle Wilson's ballet move was.
Kevin McCullar is saying, "Daaaaaang."
Adonis Arms might have jumped higher than Wilson.
Look at that air!
Even the stoic Bryson Williams was into it.
Darryl Dora and Clarence Nadolny were doing everything they could to keep the entire bench of Texas Tech from flooding the court in celebration of the achievement.
The dunk might be the best play of the tournament, that doesn't count.
I still wouldn't be surprised to see the slam in the recap video at the end of the tournament which plays the iconic One Shining Moment song over highlights from every team in the NCAA Tournament.
This dunk will also be in the final montage. Good grief.
