You’d be hard-pressed to find a play in any sport on any level that drew the level of attention of Advanced Prep International (Dallas) point guard Trevon Duval’s mind-boggling poster dunk Saturday at the American Family Insurance Hoophall West in Arizona.
Duval, a junior who is the top ranked point guard in the ESPN 60, caught the ball on the left wing, jabbed right and darted back left toward the front of the rim. When he reached the middle of the paint things went really bad really fast for the Hillcrest (Phoenix) defender who jumped with him.
“It was like a slowed down fastbreak and Terrell passed it to me,” Duval said. “I saw the defender run up to me then I jabbed him to the right and after that I saw the whole lane open up then I took a couple dribbles and tried to jump my highest. I didn’t even see the defender ’til after I dunked it!”
The downside was that the Bulldogs eventually fell to Hillcrest, 69-66.
Still, the dunk that pretty much took over social media Saturday night was so vicious we had Duval give it a name.
“Well, when I saw it, the first thing I said was ‘Oh my gosh, watch out!” Duval said. “So I’ll go with that – the Oh My Gosh, Watch Out dunk.”
Duval finished with 23 points in the loss.
Here’s another angle of Duval’s big dunk.
