Oregon player's easy fast-break dunk ends in epic fail (VIDEO)

Oregon's Elgin Cook looked like he was ready to make someone's highlight reel during a fast break Tuesday against VCU, but ended up making a blooper headline instead.

Notebook: Milwaukee native Cook energized playing at home

MILWAUKEE -- Elgin Cook is a man of few words. He's also not used to the spotlight.
