When I was on my eighth grade team, we had a player player who could dunk and another who could also dunk. Those two same players were close to dunking in the 7th grade. So this isn't so "shocking." Still mighty impressive

I don't think it has anything to do with officiating.

Eagle continues to broaden his basketball horizon, and share it all with us.


Contemplating this fact makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck.

5) i wonder how much Auburn boosters will pay to have him become a Tiger in 2016? (while I don't know the exact answer, I bet if we asked Cam Newton's dad we would get a pretty good idea...)
6) the over/under on the amount of time between when the NCAA declares him ineligilbe and then declares him eligible (so he can play at Auburn) is: 1 minute.
