POSTERIZED: Ike Nwamu’s emphatic dunk was originally called a charge (VIDEO)
Mercer’s performed well in its inaugural season as a member of the Southern Conference despite losing many of the key contributors who helped lead the team to a win over Duke in the NCAA tournament. One reason for this is 6-foot-3 guard Ike Nwamu, who after being a reserve in 2013-14 is now averaging 15.9 points per game as a sophomore.
Nwamu finished Mercer’s 75-72 overtime win over Chattanooga with 20 points, with the dunk above counting for two of those points. Nwamu was originally called for a charge, but the call was overturned. (Thanks to mercerbearfan for that note.)
In the video above is what could have been one of the more impressive dunks of the college basketball season, with Nwamu finishing emphatically over Chattanooga’s Justin Tuoyo.
With the block/charge call sparking numerous debates this season, was the decision to overturn the charge the correct one? Leave your thoughts below.
