SAN DIEGO – Jamall Franklin, a 6-5 guard at San Diego State, did something Wednesday night that you rarely see in an organized game of basketball, be it on the college or pro level: He threw down a dunk by passing it to himself off the backboard.
Very impressive stuff considering he was running at full speed in transition and decided to make the pass from the three-point line.
Some bloggers are calling it the dunk of the year. ESPN‘s SportsCenter made it the No. 1 highlight on Wednesday night.
Franklin is a junior who began his high school playing days at Serrano High in Phelan, where he led the state in scoring at 31.7 points a game, before transferring to Westwind Prep in Phoenix for his senior season.
