University of Detroit Mercy forward Doug Anderson deserved to be arrested for the assault he put on the Carnesecca Arena rim Tuesday. In the Titans’ game against St. John’s, Anderson slammed home a missed jumper by Ray McCallum, Jr. that (and I’m not exaggering) I don’t think more than a handful of NBA players could have finished.
Seth Davis of Sports Illustrated tweeted during the game: “This Doug Anderson kid on Detroit has filthy ups. Shades of Jason Richardson.”
Anderson isn’t yet well-known across the country for his ridiculous dunking ability, but I have been touting him since last year, his first with UDM. He’s an automatic win in the College Slam Dunk contest in March. Here’s video of the Tuesday putback:
ESPN thought highly enough of it to make it a candidate for their “Best of the Best” plays. You can VOTE FOR DA’s dunk here.
