Rainier Beach’s Micah Monroe won the 2019 Bass Pro Tournament of Champions Slam Dunk contest Saturday evening at JQH Arena.
The Seattle native threw down a one-handed dunk while jumping over a teammate and taking a selfie. He was given a near-perfect score with a total of 79 out of 80 on his final dunk.
Parkview’s Latre Morrison qualified for the final round thanks to a perfect dunk in which he bounced the ball off the backboard to an angle where one of his assistant coaches head-butted the ball back to Morrison, who threw down the dunk on the first attempt. Morrison was also wearing the uniform of teammate Tyem Freeman, who tore his ACL in mid-December and was unable to participate in the contest.
Springfield Central’s Donte Reese also qualified for the final round.
