Do I know who Jacob Tucker is? Not at all. As a matter of fact, doing a little research on the guy proved to be a little weird considering that he had to enter a fan contest just to appear in the NCAA Slam Dunk Contest last night inside Hoffeinz Pavilion at the University of Houston.

Being a viral sensation got Tucker to the contest but proving his mettle along some of the best collegiate dunkers in the country had to be worthwhile. The fact that the trailing dunk off the side of the backboard is becoming the dujour thing on the dunk circuit didn’t bother Tucker as he did add a spin to it. So sit back, if you have about two minutes on a Friday afternoon and watch Jacob Tucker from Division III Illinois College beat the best in the nation to win the NCAA Slam Dunk title.
