Keyontae Johnson salutes Anthony Duruji for dunk-a-thon vs. Oral Roberts in NCAA Tournament
Anthony Duruji had a poster-worthy dunk at the start of overtime against Virginia Tech, and he displayed his hops once again in the first half of Florida’s second round match-up with Oral Roberts.
Gators point guard Tre Mann found Duruji open near the right baseline, and the junior forward proceeded to flush it down with two hands to put Florida up 26-21 on the Golden Eagles.
Duruji’s slam elicited a standing ovation from forward Keyontae Johnson, who was the last UF player to have a double-double in the NCAA Tournament before Colin Castleton did so against the Hokies.
