Someone find Chavaughn Lewis' pulse and keep his feet elevated.

Anything you can do to help this young man—a forward for the Marist men's basketball team—is appreciated. The 6’5” senior suffered a catastrophic posterization at the hands of Iona’s Kelvin Amayo on Sunday and is likely still milling listlessly about the Hynes Center, brooming his pride into a dust pan.

For The Win’s Micah Peters spotted footage of the dunk, which occurred in the first half of Iona’s 89-67 dismantling of Marist. Amayo found room to gallop in transition and took off from outside the paint.

The dunk drew a foul on Lewis, who had attempted to slide in for a charge and ended up nearly falling out of the frame.

Amayo’s dunk is one verified soul-snatching from a weekend of big dunks in college basketball. Willie Cauley-Stein similarly lit the court aflame with his brief and violent disposal of Florida’s Devin Robinson on Saturday.

Throw two more in the hat. Between Amayo, Cauley-Stein and Jerian Grant, we've got at least three verifiable Dunk of the Year candidates thus far in the season.

As for Lewis, keep calm, buddy. These things happen. A few anticoagulants and some weapons-grade Ibuprofen, and it'll be just like this never happened. Kind of.
