UNLV-bound Derrick Jones wins yet another dunk contest (VIDEO)
Archbishop Carroll (Pennsylvania) forward Derrick Jones is regarded as one of the top athletes in the Class of 2015, and he’s part of a talented recruiting class reeled in by the UNLV coaching staff. That explosive athletic ability is one reason why Jones is a Top 50 prospect, and it’s also led to multiple dunk contest victories.
Saturday afternoon Jones won another dunk contest, this one coming at the Ballislife All-America Game in Long Beach, California. Above are each of Jones’ dunks, beginning with a left-handed version of the 360 degree windmill dunk Vince Carter opened up the 2000 NBA slam dunk contest with.
Other winners in Long Beach on Saturday were Kentucky bound Isaiah Briscoe (three-point contest) and Skal Labissiere (All-America Game co-MVP), and undecided forward Thon Maker (co-MVP). It remains to be seen when Maker, who in mid-February announced that he’s on track to graduate this year, will join a college program of his choosing (this summer/fall or December).
