Sam Thompson clearly missed his calling as a human weather balloon. He gets so much air that as of 9:35 Wednesday night, a Google search for Sam Thompson dunk turned up around 1,530,000 results.
And his alley-oop against Nebraska? Ri-dic-u-lous.
The Big Ten Network has posted the video here.
The Twitter world was naturally in awe. (Click on a tweet if you wish to enlarge it.)
And so were Thompson’s teammates, as you can tell from the video Buckeye Grove shared here.
Hmm…Deshaun Thomas thinks the dunk versus Nebraska is Sam’s finest. Aaron Craft seems to believe it was Thompson’s rim-rattler against Indiana almost exactly one year ago.
So I guess we officially have a Sam Dunk competition!
