Coley's best in-game dunk?

Despite the loss to Rhode Island, Charlotte's game Thursday night did feature some crowd pleasing moments, particularly from senior forward Charlie Coley who had four dunks.

For those who attended the game, all four were fairly memorable but one - a one-handed windmill dunk late in the second half while Charlotte was mounting a comeback - was particularly powerful. It even appeared the Rhode Island players were running for cover.

It may be the best dunk in a college game I have seen. And when looking on Facebook Thursday night I found several people who already had posted similiar messages.

What do you think?

It was nice, but Eddie Basden's tomahawk against Houston in 2005 was without a doubt better. As far as Halton Arena dunks go, I'd also nominate Jermaine Williams' embarrassment of Louisville's Brandon Bender in 2002.

get down with the sickness!!! A coley3 dunk is about the only reason to honor my pre-paid tickets. I have perfect attendance this year and will finish it out, I look forward to more. Where can we get video of it, I know they tape all the games.

after checking niner nation, it seems like we like dunks in games that mean something, not a close but nevertheless loss in a conference we have no chance of competing in. If that dunk happened @ the Clemson game, you remember, when hopes were still high for this year's team, it would be on the video board next year.

It was a great dunk, but there have been many more great ones. DeMarco Johnson used to abuse the backboards at Halton. I don't even think that was Coley's best dunk, try to find video of the Temple game when he had a breakaway windmill dunk that he almost hit his head on the rim. Pul, the dunk you are reffering to was a "tomahawk" dunk.

WOULD'VE TRADED THEM ALL FOR A WIN THOUGH!!!!!!!!!
