Utah G Marco Anthony Throws Down One-Handed Alley-Oop Dunk Over Oregon Defender
SALT LAKE CITY – University of Utah men’s basketball guard Marco Anthony threw down a monster alley-oop slam dunk over an Oregon defender.
With 4:54 remaining in the game, Utah guard Rollie Worster was inbounding the ball on their own baseline when Marco Anthony came around a double screen before his impressive dunk. As Anthony came around the two screens into the paint, Worster threw the ball up past the backboard.
Anthony caught the ball and threw it down with his left hand over an Oregon defender.
That dunk cut Oregon’s lead to 71-59 with 4:50 remaining in the game and rocked the Jon M. Huntsman. Utah basketball retired the jersey of legend Tom Chambers at halftime.
