Cincinnati probably felt pretty good about itself after a close first half against Kentucky.
Then came Willie Cauley-Stein’s posterizing, demoralizing, roof-shattering dunk on Quadri Moore.
Kentucky started slow from the field in the round of 32 game against Cincinnati on Saturday, but Cauley-Stein’s dunk gave Kentucky a 25-24 lead amid a 10-0 run to end the first half.
If the dunk wasn’t demoralizing enough for Moore and Cincinnati, Bearcats forward Octavius Ellis, UC’s leading scorer, took a knee to the back, sending him to the locker room early.
Cauley-Stein has done this to dozens of players this season, but the dunks never stop being amazing. The stills here are almost as good as the video:
