Video: Minnesota player pulls off 360-degree dunk
On Tuesday, Minnesota played host to North Dakota State in a little roundball action. Minnesota won the game, 70-57, and did so partly because of this 360-degree dunk by senior forward Rodney Williams Jr.
Watch as Williams picks off a pass and then proceeds to take it all the way to the other end and finishes with an acrobatic flush. The landing didn't go so well, but who cares? The basket was worth two points either way and the play itself is now making the rounds on the world wide web.
Said Williams afterward: "I got nervous. I had to do what I knew would go in, so I did a 360. You see I almost broke my back afterward, so maybe next time I should just lay it up or something."
