Travis Leslie’s Dunk of the Year
And with that, all I can say is, “Welcome to SEC Basketball, DeMarcus Cousins. It won’t be as easy as you think.” Travis Leslie’s dunk was so vicious, it left a crowd of about 24,000 in stunned silence. Well, except for all the “oohing and ahhing” going on on. I mean, what else can you say if you’re a Kentucky fan? We’ll get you next time? Perhaps “sign my poster, please, Mr Leslie” is more appropriate. Granted, the Wildcats scraped by the Bulldogs, but it wasn’t easy. In fact, Team John Wall trailed at halftime and only had a two-point lead with less than a minute left in the game.
To say the Bulldogs, who already have wins against Georgia Tech and Illinois, are better than expected — they were picked last in the SEC East — is a little bit of understatement. Just ask DeMarcus Cousins what he thinks of the Dawgs, especially the one who goes by “Travis Leslie.” While they didn’t pull the upset off, it wasn’t for a lack of effort, especially for Leslie.
Besides his eye-popping dunk, Leslie led the Bulldogs with 20 points as they fell just short of shocking Kentucky and the rest of the college basketball world.
