The best part of the Arizona Wildcats’ Red-Blue Game on Saturday might be the dunk contest.
These can sometimes get long and repetitive, but this shapes up as a can’t-miss event.
Sophomore Gabe York will take on freshman phenom Aaron Gordon and springy brothers Nick Johnson and Chris Johnson, sons of former hoopster Jumpin’ Joey Johnson, who had a legendary 52-inch vertical jump in his day.
Gordon has to be the favorite, right? Size, power, athleticism. Check, check, check. Take a look at the video below from the dunk contest at the McDonald’s All-American Game, starting at about the 30-second mark. His dunks are all potential winners.
“He’s a great athletic dunker,” York said, not conceding anything. “I have some tricks up my sleeve. Some brand-new stuff.”
