Dunk of year? See Alabama basketball's JD Davison posterize Auburn's Walker Kessler
Alabama basketball guard J.D. Davison came up with a powerful dunk over Auburn's Walker Kessler in Coleman Coliseum on Tuesday.
Dunk of the year? It might be in the running.
The dunk was part of a 14-0 run that helped the No. 25 Crimson Tide tie Auburn with 3:24 left against the No. 4 Tigers. Auburn pulled out the 81-77 win.
ESPN announcers later called the dunk a dunk of the year candidate.
Davison, a 6-foot-3 freshman, drove in and jumped with the 7-1 Walker. The dunk caused the Alabama bench players to stand and celebrate along with the rest of the crowd.
Davison, a five-star recruit, was known for his dunks as a star at Calhoun High. He placed third in the American Family Insurance High School Slam Dunk contest before arriving at Alabama.
