Video: Hoophall Classic Dunk Contest

Here’s some footage from the Hoophall Classic Dunk Contest, held at Springfield College (Mass.) yesterday. Some of the nations best talent was on display. Notable names included Anthony Davis (Kentucky), Deuce Bello (Baylor), and Omar Calhoun (Junior from Christ The King HS).

But nothing compares to the insane dunks below. There were a few nice slams for the appetizer, but the main course was served by Westchester Country Day’s Ike Nwamu. Nwamu’s performance is certainly one of the best ever from a high-schooler, and his tape could compete with any pros. Vince Carter would be proud. The first video includes most of the contest, while the second highlights Nwamu’s dunks. The second video has a cool shout-out from former NBA player Dee Brown, and also includes one of the best missed-dunks ever. Enjoy.
