    CA's Dunk

    We have witnessed a ton of dunks in Cyclone history but CA's dunk last night over the player of the year, top NBA pick, and in a hostile Kentucky environment has to rank up there as one of the best. I watched it over and over and was just floored how he took off from the free throw line and in mid air adjusted the tomahawk to get around Davis' block attempt. Absolutely incredible coming from a guard that is only 6'4.

    Others that come to mind are Fizers over Mihm and grayer's in the Big 8 tourney. Royce had some memorable ones too over Jones and MKG. But CA's will be up there too and deserves to be placed in the ISU dunk hall of fame.

    Thanks for playing your heart out CA and I will never forget that moment. Most importantly you'll have a college degree after this year (if not already) and most of the opponents last night won't be able to the same.

    Thanks CA!

    I let out a whoop after that dunk that the people four blocks away could hear.

    I yelped, too.

    I typically don't get overly-vocal when I watch; I stay fairly restrained.

    Several times during that game, I let loose, and Allen's dunk was my biggest.

    Completely unexpected is what made it so awesome. Not something that's typically part of his game.

    Re: CA's Dunk

    That dunk surprised the hell out of me. It was clear that ISU understood that they had to finish strong at the rim against UK, none of that weak ****, or it would get swatted.

    One of my favorite plays from the game.

    Not quite the same, but something that I thought we'd see more of (and I don't mean that as a complaint):

    Re: CA's Dunk

    That was definitely an OMG moment. Came out of nowhere in an NCAA game against the #1 team. It was bigtime. It is deserving of the same conversation as Fizers and Grayers famous slams.

    Re: CA's Dunk

    Not so much the dunk but who it was against and when in the game. Kinda like RW's dunk to start the UConn game. Here we are fellas let's get it on!!

    The team gave it their all as Cyclones. It's great to be a Cyclone.

    Re: CA's Dunk

    The timing of it made it even more special. Kentucky was just physically pounding it and looking like they would dominate in that aspect. Chris made a statement, that's what made it so tremendous.

    I had to cut file size to upload here.

    It was a great dunk...just wish he would have tried that more earlier in the season. Did he dunk even once before this tournament?
