Duke freshman Semi Ojeleye set the Kansas high school career scoring record with 2,763 points before joining the Blue Devils. We're guessing very few of those points were as impressive as the two he scored on a vicious dunk to cap a five-on-five portion of practice this week.

We should mention the dunk comes off a nice half-court pass from senior guard Tyler Thornton.

Yes, as Allen Iverson would say, we're talking about practice here, but you have to appreciate moments of pure athleticism like this whenever you find them. If nothing else, the video of this dunk leaves us wanting to see a lot more of Ojeleye, a product of Ottawa, Kan.

Duke opens the season Nov. 8 at home against Davidson. Until then, enjoy this a few times.
