Watch: Terps' Donta Scott leads SC Top 10 with crazy dunk

Washington

While the whole point of blogging is to actually write down words of description and reaction to whatever the topic is, sometimes we're just left speechless.

Tuesday night was one of those times, after watching this jaw-dropping putback dunk from Maryland forward Donta Scott against La Salle.

This was the kind of slam that gets everybody watching out of their seats. It's a shame it had to come during the pandemic, as the Maryland faithful in the Xfinity Center Tuesday night surely would have lost their minds in person.

Even without fans, it was enough to earn SportsCenter's top spot on the Top 10 plays of the day.

Scott has quickly emerged as perhaps Maryland's best player this season, despite just beginning his sophomore year and not being a highly-regarded recruit -- many expected he was underrated, but he barely cracked the top 150 in most rankings.

Multiple times this season, Scott has been the only Terrapin capable of generating any offense. That wasn't an issue Tuesday, as Maryland cruised to an easy victory. But once again, Scott managed to steal the day thanks to yet another wild highlight.
