Louisville vs. Michigan is the first game of a busy Sunday of March Madness, and it’s off to a flying start… almost literally.
America, meet Deng Adel, Gravity Denier:
— NCAA March Madness (@marchmadness) March 19, 2017
Adel caught the ball outside the 3-point arc. He didn’t dribble. In mid-air, he was still remarkably far from the rim, with a defender in between his body and the goal:
How?!? How does that turn into this?
Adel isn’t the runaway winner for dunk of the tournament. He has close competition from SMU’s Semi Ojeleye, who threw down an explosive tip-slam on Friday. But this Adel dunk… Wow. Just wow.
