VIDEO: Murray State’s Ja Morant throws down monster dunk on Alabama

Murray State v West Virginia

SAN DIEGO, CA - MARCH 16: Ja Morant #12 of the Murray State Racers competes for the ball against Daxter Miles Jr. #4 of the West Virginia Mountaineers during the first round of the 2018 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament at Viejas Arena on March 16, 2018 in San Diego, California.

Murray State sophomore point guard Ja Morant is becoming a hot name among NBA draftniks and hardcore college hoops fans.

The 6-foot-3 lead guard had another monster outing on Monday night as he went for 38 points, nine rebounds and five rebounds in a loss on the road at Alabama. Morant, who some consider a potential first-round pick next summer, is coming off of a triple-double against Missouri State that was 29 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists.

This dunk in the loss to Alabama should make more people aware of Morant’s freakish upside. He’s the nation’s leader in assists per game, shooting 42 percent from three-point range and he’s still playing above the rim over SEC-caliber competition.
