Marquette earned the right to declare itself a better team than Washington with a 79-77 victory Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden, but there's still one debate that could not be settled by the scoreboard.
Which team had the better dunk?
Was it Washington sophomore Terrence Ross' spinning 180-degree alley-oop jam off a nice feed from point guard Tony Wroten with 11 minutes left in the second half?
Or was it Marquette sophomore Vander Blue's emphatic annihilation of Washington's Abdul Gaddy a few minutes later on a one-handed fast-break slam?
SportsCenter gave the nod to Ross over Blue, but it probably comes down to the viewer's preference. Ross' dunk was more acrobatic. Blue's was all sheer power.
