Watch Detroit's Doug Anderson win college dunk contest [Video]

April 05, 2013|By Dan Loumena

Doug Anderson, a high-flying forward from the University of Detroit Mercy, capped his college career on Thursday night by easily winning the dunk contest at McCamish Pavilion in Atlanta to begin Final Four weekend festivities.

The 6-foot-6 senior from Kalamazoo, Mich., did nothing but impress, including a final 360-degree dunk in which he brought the ball between his legs and did a reverse windmill slam.

Check out the video above to believe it.

You'll also see Anderson do a double-pumping, two-handed reverse dunk, and leap above another player, grab the ball from his raised arm and slam it as his head rises above the rim.

Four dunks, four perfect scores for Anderson, who many are saying could win the NBA dunk contest. Only problem there is that he probably doesn't have the all-around game to play in the NBA.

Anderson defeated Arizona State forward Carrick Felix in the final round. USC forward Renaldo Woolridge and La Salle guard Ramon Galloway were semifinalists.
