UC Riverside saw its season come to an end with a Thursday loss to UC Irvine in the Big West Tournament, but they’ll at least get a lasting memory from the final game.

Junior forward Taylor Johns threw down a poster dunk on 7-foot-6 center Mamadou Ndiaye. Even if Ndiaye doesn’t jump, he can still challenge shots at the rim like few human beings will ever be able to do, so dunking on him is always a big deal.



I’m not sure if this is as good as Rondae Hollis-Jefferson getting college basketball’s tallest player earlier in the season, but it’s still pretty strong.
