Video: Louisville's Chane Behanan throws down dunk of the year
Could this dunk by Louisville Cardinals sophomore Chane Behanan go down as the best dunk of the college basketball season?
Leading 21-16 with just under five minutes to go in the first half, Behanan intercepts an errant pass around midcourt, takes a couple of dribbles, and proceeds to go full speed at the rim. The only thing standing in his way is Blue Demons senior Worrel Clahar, but not for long.
Louisville's talented forward skies up, over, and through Clahar en route to a powerful slam. At one point, Behanan's knee meets Clahar in the face as the DePaul guard goes crashing down to the hardwood.
Initially, the basket didn't count as Behanan was called for an offensive foul. However, the call was eventually overturned and the Bowling Green, Ky. native was awarded a free throw, and nailed it to finish the old fashioned three-point play.
The Cards cruised to an easy 79-58 victory thanks in part to a 10 point and nine rebound performance from Behanan.
