Michigan’s 105-46 win over Youngstown State wasn’t all that competitive, but it did include a high-quality alley-oop dunk thrown down by sophomore Aubrey Dawkins.

Not so, as in one motion Dawkins caught the ball with his right hand and threw down a dunk…while being fouled. You can see the visual evidence of this finish in the video above.
And if that wasn’t enough Dawkins also threw down a two-handed 360.
