Watch Texas Freshman Kerwin Roach Throw Down the Dunk of the Year

We're calling this one the Dunk of the Year. For real.

Watch Texas Freshman Kerwin Roach Throw Down the Dunk of the Year
I know, I know. Calling something "the dunk of the year" sounds like empty hyperbole. But I mean it. I truly mean it. And it is!

A few months ago, we brought you this insane video of Texas freshman Kerwin Roach jumping and touching the highest marker on the vertical leap test. The 6-foot-3 guard could touch the top of the backboard. Last night, in a game against UT Arlington, Roach put his ridiculous hops on full display.

Driving down the middle of the lane at full speed, Roach took off from just inside the free-throw line and threw down one of the most vicious dunks we've ever seen. What made the play even more ridiculous: Roach did right on top of a UT Arlington big man, who must have thought it was a good idea to try to stop Roach from finishing his sky-high acrobatic move.

Keep your eye on Roach as the season goes on. We have a feeling he'll be doing more of this as his collegiate career progresses. We might run out of superlatives.
