VIDEO: Division II players goes between-the-legs in a game

In today’s Morning Mix, Troy featured a video of Ra’Shad James, a leaper from Northwood (NAIA) University that can flat out fly.

The video was sent around by the coaches from Northwood as they try to get him sent to Atlanta to partake in the college dunk contest.

I’ll co-sign that, just like I’ll co-sign Justin Glover of Winston Salem-State.

Two weeks ago in a 12 point win over Elizabeth City State — which sounds like it should exist in Ancient Greece — Justin Glover went between-the-legs to put an exclamation point on the victory. Oh yes, there’s video:

The best part is this bit from the write-up on the WSSU site (emphasis mine):

Justin Glover would finish WSSU’s scoring on a between the legs monster dunk, the same one he missed earlier in the game during a crucial stretch. But this time he brought down the loud and boisterous crowd in the hot and steam CE Gaines Center.

So he already missed a between-the-legs dunk in the game, during a “crucial stretch”, but still had the intestinal fortitude to try it during the game a second time?

Yeah, this kid needs to be at the college dunk contest.

Who knows what he’ll try.

Mamadou Ndiaye is one of the most unique players in college basketball.

Because he’s 7-foot-6.

Guys like that don’t come around often, and when they do, they do things like this: posterizing an opponent without having to jump.
