Derrick Jones had no problem telling people last year that he was the “best dunker in high school” and then backing it up with nasty poster dunks and ridiculousness like a windmill from the free throw line. After watching him jump over a bunch of people during Runnin Rebel Madness and throwing down this monster dunk against New Mexico Highlands University last night, it’s safe to say the 18 year old freak of nature can walk around calling himself the “best dunker in college.”
What do we think about that title? He won our All-American Dunk Contest earlier in the year, so we are not only on board with the title, we want the whole world to know about it.
Lost in all the hoopla over this dunk is the Rebels killing New Mexico 107-45 which included a 47-4 run. Five Rebels scored in double figures. Freshman Jalen Poyser had 16 points on a perfect 4 of 4 from downtown and Stephen Zimmerman had his first double double with 15 points and 10 rebounds. Derrick Jones had 14 points.
