CHICAGO – Come Thursday, Oak Hill Academy (Mouth of Wilson, Va.) shooting guard Dwayne Bacon will lace ‘em up with his teammates in pursuit of the DICK’s Sporting Goods High School Nationals title, but on Monday night at the University of Chicago he settled for the POWERADE Jam Fest Dunk Contest title.

Bacon placed ESPN analyst and former NBA star Jalen Rose under the basket and jumped over him in the final round to secure the hardware.

Bacon, a Florida State signee, beat out Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) center Stephen Zimmerman.

Perhaps the best dunk of the night was the one that fell just short — Spring Valley (Columbia, S.C.) point guard Perry Dozier Jr. juggled three balls then threw one up and tried to catch it mid-air for the dunk, but it missed hard off the back of the rim.

Dessert Vista (Phoenix) center Kristine Anigwe was a fan favorite, but failed to complete a dunk. She was attempting to become the first girl to win the contest since Candace Parker in 2004.
 
She enlisted the help of Zimmerman, who threw the ball off the backboard to her in the second round, but her dunk rimmed out.
