WATCH: Texas A&M guard Manny Obaseki’s rim-rattling dunk featured on SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays

Standing at a towering 7-feet tall, Kentucky sophomore forward Ugonna Onyenso isn’t often challenged in the paint but Texas A&M junior guard Manny Obaseki simply did not care.

Leading 23-18 with just under 12 minutes to play in the first half Saturday at Reed Arena against the Wildcats, Obaseki crossed over, drove into the paint and went up for a rim-rattling dunk. The only problem was, that Onyenso was in his way.

That ultimately didn’t matter as Obaseki skied over the sophomore and slammed the dunk on his head. As the great play-by-play broadcaster Kevin Harlan once said, Obaseki threw down the dunk “with no regard for human life!”

As noted by the Texas A&M men’s basketball account on X, it wasn’t a matter of if but where the junior high flyer’s throwdown would be featured in ESPN‘s Top 10 plays. On Saturday night, Obaseki earned the No. 6 spot in SportsCenter’s daily segment.

The Aggies pulled off the upset 97-92 in overtime to earn their first SEC victory of the season. With plays like Obaseki displayed this weekend, many more wins are on the way to College Station soon.
