Louisville Commit Donovan Mitchell Throws Down Nasty One-Handed Alley-Oop

Top high school prospects from all over the nation gathered at the Elite 24 Under Armour basketball game on Saturday, which naturally led to a slew of jaw-dropping highlights.

This dunk by Louisville commit Donovan Mitchell was the best one of all.

On a lob from half court, the 6’3″ guard rose up,  gathered the ball with one hand and threw it down with authority.

Mitchell, a rising senior, won’t join the Cardinals until the 2015-16 season. Until then, Louisville fans can just watch this clip on loop.

WATCH: Andre Drummond throws down big alley-oop

The three of them lost all capacity to speak intelligibly and basically all blurted out the first thing that came to mind: “OOOOoohhhoOOOhhhhhOOOOooooHHHhhh.” To be fair, that reaction summed up Drummond’s dunk far better than even the most eloquent of soliloquies could have.

Terrance Ferguson Throws Down Smooth 1-Handed, 360-Degree Windmill Dunk

Seventeen-year-old Terrance Ferguson isn’t lacking in the athleticism department, to say the least.

The 6’7″ high school junior threw down a smooth one-handed, 360-degree windmill slam for his teammates at USA Basketball camp. He was so smooth that he even made a missed attempt look good.

Ferguson is a 5-star recruit who’s considering Oklahoma State, Florida, Baylor and SMU, among others, according to 247Sports. It’s not hard to see why he’s so highly touted after watching this clip.

Terrence Ross Throws Down Hammer Dunk vs. Atlanta Hawks

Terrence Ross never leaves home without his Paul Millsap-scaring shoes.

Late in the second quarter of the Toronto Raptors‘ come-from-behind 96-86 victory over the Atlanta Hawks, Ross threw down a nasty hammer off a pass from Kyle Lowry:

Couple of things to note here.

First, wow.

Second, wow.

Third, credit Millsap with running scared. He wanted no part of Ross’ latest poster jam. He would much rather step aside than be immortalized Brandon Knight-style.
