Alex Poythress dunks over 7-foot Dakari Johnson (VIDEO)

After the six games Kentucky played in the Bahamas last month it was clear that Big Blue Nation will have no shortage of highlights this season.

Whether it’s out on the break or it’s a lob from the Harrison twins or Tyler Ulis to one of the many giants on the frontline, Kentucky will compile plenty of dunks this season.

One of the best dunkers college basketball has to offer this season is junior forward Alex Poythress. Earlier this week, the 6-foot-7 forward provided another glimpse of the high-flying attack Kentucky will posses this upcoming season, as he dunked over the 7-foot sophomore Dakari Johnson and posted it to his Instagram page. It may also serve as a preview for the upcoming Big Blue Madness, where teammates have been dunked on in each of the last two years.

Poythress started all six games in the Big Blue Bahamas Tour and was Kentucky’s leading scorer, averaging 11.8 points to go along with 5.8 rebounds per game. The Wildcats went 5-1 in those six games.

Kentucky, which in all likelihood will be the unanimous No. 1 entering the season, kicks off its 2014-2015 campaign on Nov. 14 against Grand Canyon at Rupp Arena.
