High School Basketball Player Victor Dukes Leaps Defender in a Single Bound

Sometimes, the best way to the bucket is over your opponent. 

Bob's Blitz (h/t Deadspin) brings us a magical video from the recent tournament going down at Arkansas State University. 

 

Update: Wednesday, Jan. 2, 4:55 p.m. ET

We recently found a much clearer video of the dunk, presented before you, with the added bonus of the referee not blocking the action. 

---End of Update---

 

During a game between the Nettleton Raiders and Manila in the 66th Annual NEA Invitational High School Basketball Tournament, a game Nettleton would win, Raiders star Victor Dukes took to the air for one amazing dunk. 

We already saw how effective a basketball player can be going under a defender, as Nate Robinson proved when he ran under Sebastian Telfair for a bucket. 

Now, we see it's possible for a player to simply sky over his opponent as if he were but a speed bump on the road to victory. 

Stick through the video. On your first viewing, you will pretty much curse the referee who makes a much better wall than a window. 

You know that something epic just went down by the reaction from the crowd. That's when we get a slow-mo replay of the move on the Jumbotron. 

Like Bob's Blitz, we are just as impressed with Dukes getting back on defense like a champ. This is far from his first rodeo, and he is going to act like jumping over another young man was all in a day's work. 

If you see Dukes dribbling your way, save your ego and get out of the way.
