Kentucky’s James Young Posterizes 2 UConn Defenders with Huge Dunk [Video]

James Young over everyone

James Young of Kentucky rose up and punched down a nasty dunk with his left hand on UConn 7-foot freshman Amida Brimah. It was everything you could want in a electrifying dunk. Violence, filthiness (if thats a word), and spectacular.

The freshman followed up the monster slam by sinking the free throw to make it a three-point play.

Connecticut Advances to Championship Game By Dominating Florida After Slow Start

The Florida Gators played their worst game of the year, on the biggest stage of the year, falling to the Connecticut Huskies 65-53 in the NCAA semifinal Saturday night.

Ryan Boatright no-look pass

Connecticut trailed 16-4 in the first half, with many declaring the Huskies for dead against the top-seeded Gators. The Huskies, though, dominated the rest of the game thanks to their guards and DeAndre Daniels. Connecticut outscored Florida 59-37 over the remainder of the game, and took it to Florida steadily. Daniels led the scoring with 20 points, while Scottie Wilbekin had a horrible game, forcing many shots, dribbling too much, and scoring only 4 points.

UConn’s Shabazz Napier and Ryan Boatright combined for 25 points, nine rebounds and nine assists.
