POSTERIZED: Wayne Selden Jr. throws down vicious dunk on Baylor defender

Like his teammates, Kansas guard Wayne Selden Jr. got off to a slow start in the first half of his team’s Big 12 tournament semifinal against Baylor. But the Jayhawks got going in the second half, and Selden’s dunk on Baylor’s Ishmail Wainwright proved to be the highlight of the game.

Wainwright had good intentions when he attempted to rotate over to get between Selden and the basket in the second half of their Big 12 semifinal matchup. Unfortunately for Wainwright things did not work out as he likely envisioned, as his rotation was a bit late and Selden took flight for a powerful one-handed dunk.

And to add insult to “injury,” Wainwright fouled out on the play. And the reaction that Selden’s uncle had to the dunk was priceless.
