VIDEO: Best dunks of the 2011-12 college basketball season


There isn’t much in our world of college hoops that is better than a big-time dunk.

Whether it’s the result of a help-side defender late on a rotation, a shot-blocker gambling and missing on a fast break or a helpless defender caught off guard on a backdoor alley-oop, a vicious slam can change the momentum of a game.

We’ve had our fair share of dunks this season.

Some of them came during nationally televised games. Others were in a gym with 500 people in it somewhere in the middle of Alabama.

And that is what is so great about this video that ESPN put together of the season’s best dunks. They managed to get most (not all, however, they missed a few) of the big dunks of the regular season and package them nicely in this minute long video. And trust me, it is just as awesome as it sounds:
