Found February 02, 2012 on Busted Coverage:

Look, we had no idea who Savalace Townsend was until today, either. He’s a basketball player for Arkansas-Pine Bluff and he threw down a dunk every bit as nice as the one Blake Griffin threw down over Kendrick Perkins on Sunday.

Townsend, who averages 17.1 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game, threw down his monster against Grambling State earlier this week. Of course, he got no coverage because everyone was blathering on about Griffin’s dunk.

Well, we’re here to change that. Check out Townsend drive the lane and unleash.

Posted: February 1, 2012

Premise of Video: Arkansas-Pine Bluff guard Savalace Townsend drives the lane and unleashes a beast of a dunk reminiscent of the one the Los Angeles Clippers Blake Griffin unleashed on Sunday.

Climax of Video: The dunk. Duh!

Conclusion: Frankly, we like this dunk better than Griffin’s because, 1. Townsend actually drove around someone and through the lane himself, and 2. he didn’t just throw the ball through the hoop and scrape two fingers against the rim like Griffin did. He got it all!
