Early in the first half of of the Colorado men’s basketball team’s matchup against Utah, Buffaloes guard Derrick White unleashed one of the best dunks of the college basketball season. The 6-foot-5 senior caught the ball at the top of the 3-point arc, fooled Utah’s Tyler Rawson with a pump fake and then threw down on 7-footer Jayce Johnson.
Here’s another angle:
White finished the game with 31 points on 10-of-17 shooting. Colorado still fell to Utah 86-81 despite his performance, which really doesn’t seem fair seeing as his dunk should’ve counted for somewhere in the ballpark of 10 points.
White, a Parker native who transferred from the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs, is averaging 17.3 points, 4.1 assists and 3.9 rebounds this season.
I was busy watching the Nuggets get trounced by the Boogie Cousins-less Kings when this clip popped up on my laptop, but I can tell you I hit the Antonio Banderas hard upon seeing it.
Colorado (16-13) has two regular-season games remaining before the Pac-12 Tournament begins.
