Meet Eastern Kentucky guard Marcus Lewis.
That’s some seriously dunkage. In some way, you can think of Lewis as being the Colonels’ Briante Weber. This season, Lewis is EKU’s second-leading scorer at 12.9 points per game. He’s shooting .594 from the field, which I assume is because he spends most of his time just dunking in people’s grills. In the last two seasons, Lewis has 40 dunks. This year, he has 15 in eight games. The rest of his teammates have seven – combined. Either way, he’s going to be a fun match-up for somebody Thursday.
This week, VCU Coach Shaka Smart called Lewis, “maybe the most athletic kid in the country,” and said his dunk in the video above was one of the most impressive he’s ever seen.
If Thursday’s game is tied after regulation, we’re going to petition the NCAA for a Marcus Lewis/Briante Weber dunk contest to settle it. I’ll let you know what they say.
Update with official NCAA response: “You must have hit your head on the rim. Hard.”
