Center for the regular season game against the University of Louisville. The Wolf Pack had a 14-11 won-lost record and had lost five of their last six games. Even texted a good friend in North Carolina...

I realize that a dunk is worth two points just like a layup but for Harrell to break the UofL record in such a quick amount of time is truly amazing. As mentioned, these dunks are worth just two points, but a Harrell slam can really change the momentum...
