Video: Dunkmaster Evans shows his stuff
High-flying UW-Green Bay senior Terry Evans was among a select group of eight players invited to participate in the national Slam Dunk Championship as part of Final Four weekend in Detroit.
The event aired nationally on ESPN on April 2. Evans had two dunks in the preliminary round. His first, a catch-and-stuff off a nifty over-the-backboard feed, drew near-perfect scores and placed him among the top three. (Two members of the judging panel, star NFL receivers Braylon Edwards and Calvin Johnson, came to their feet to applaud as Evans high-fived other competitors.) Evans’ second dunk, a twisting double-pump reverse, got lower scores, which kept him from advancing to the next round. Overall, the Phoenix star finished fifth of eight competitiors. The event was won by New Mexico’s Tony Dandridge.
