P.J. Hairston came into North Carolina known as a shooter, but in a recent win over Georgia Tech Hairston had a monster jam. Last year Hairston also had two monster slams against Texas and Florida State.
Late in the second half Dexter Strickland came up with a steal and he and Hairston were on a 2 on 1 fast break. Strickland gave the ball up to Hairston, who threw down a monster dunk on Tech’s 7-footer Daniel Miller. Check it out on video below.
Here are some quotes from Hairston after the game.
“I didn’t see (Miller) until the last second and I was up there so I thought ‘Why not?’
“After the dunk I was kind of posing and I had to sprint back on defense because my man beat me back down the court.”
“I think (that dunk) was better than (my dunks against) Texas and better than Florida State.”
