VIDEO: Derrick Jones' monster poster dunk on Cody Riley gets the City of Palms highlights rolling

By

The 2014 City of Palms Classic is underway, and it didn’t take long for the unbelievable highlights to get rolling.

In a game between Philadelphia-area power Archbishop John Carroll and Sierra Canyon from near L.A., Carroll star Derrick Jones — a UNLV commit and consensus top-50 prospect in the Class of 2015 — collected a loose ball near the periphery and took off toward the hoop. When he got there, he met Cody Riley, a star in his own right (though only a sophomore).

Riley never had a chance. Jones took off from the edge of the key, leapt directly above Riley and threw down a forceful slam on top of him at the rim. It was an absolutely monster poster jam.

Sierra Canyon won the game 59-55, largely thanks to Riley’s impressive overall performance (22 pts, 9 rebounds! From a sophomore! At City of Palms!) Still, no one will forget that he ended up on the wrong side of one massive slam anytime soon.
