BYU was up on rival Utah 45-36 with 11 and a half minutes remaining in the second half when Childs took the ball in the paint, rose with one hand and flushed the ball over a pair of Utes. The neutral-site arena went crazy with cheers from the Cougar faithful and even some appreciation from Utah fans.
Josh Hart of the Los Angeles Lakers took note of the big slam.
Dude from BYU just dunked on the whole University of Utah 😳
