Defender makes poor attempt to block a dunk, fails miserably

UPDATE:

The defender in question has now come out in response to being put on a poster, and it’s the best response he could’ve had.

Tucker Holt, who was on the receiving end of the dunk, alleges that he didn’t try and block the dunk attempt.

He’s been a good sport about the incident, making light of the event and going as far as agreeing to our earlier post assuming he was still sore, while also updating his Twitter bio: @TuckerHolt.

By reading his mention’s, you can tell Tucker is respected for playing hard and giving each game his all. Keep up the hard work, Tucker. You’ll get ’em next time. Thanks for having fun!

ORIGINAL STORY:

When Oak Ridge’s (Tenn.) Tee Higgins rose up for what was a sure-fire dunk, some poor defender thought it would be a good idea to try and block his attempt.

In theory, it was a good idea: block the shot.

In practice: not so much.

Higgins, who also happens to be a four-star football recruit committed to Tennessee, threw down the one-handed jam with no regard for the human life that stood in his way.

A bit of advice for the unfortunate defender, who I’m sure is still sore today…don’t jump.

ESPN was first to report.
