Saturday afternoon the United States U19 team faced its toughest challenge at the FIBA U19 World Championships in Crete, as they took on the host country Greece in a semifinal matchup.

And 2016 forward Jayson Tatum provided one of the highlights of the event in the second quarter, as he threw down a powerful one-handed dunk on a Greek defender. Not only did the defender get dunked on, but he wound up with a bloody nose as well.
