Johnathan Motley didn’t have a clear path to the basket after he spun around his defender on the block. It didn’t matter. He just went through Chimezie Metu, who slid over as the help-side defender.
Motley’s highlight-reel dunk put the Bears up 29-23 late in the first half against the Trojans. He was named second-team All-American by NBC Sports after a junior year where he averaged 17.3 points, 9.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.1 blocks per game.
The winner of this game advances to the Sweet 16 to play the winner of Duke and South Carolina.
