Tennessee’s Jordan McRae sends in a 360-dunk to seal the Vols’ win (Video)

The Dagger

The most impressive part of Jordan McRae's in-game 360-dunk at the SEC tournament isn't that he, you know, threw down a 360-degree dunk during a game.

It's that the Tennessee guard did it so effortlessly.

Tennessee was pulling away from lowly Mississippi State late in its SEC tournament contest, when McRae got a steal and had an easy fast break.

McRae lifted off in the paint, spun in the air and threw down the dunk with ease. You have to be one heck of an athlete to do that.

McRae had a shot at winning the SEC player of the year with a strong finish to his junior year, but was passed over for the award. He'll have to settle for having one of the highlights of a busy day in college basketball, and keeping his team's NCAA tournament hopes alive with a necessary victory.
