cwinston@thestate.comDecember 21, 2013 

It's not often that a high school sophomore is compared to basketball's greatest player.

But the hype around Hammond's Seventh Woods has never been normal.

The sophomore earned more national attention on Friday when his dunk against Dreher in the Chick-fil-A Classic became an ESPN SportsCenter top play.

On an ESPN Twitter poll, the dunk was voted better than one Friday by the Miami Heat's LeBron James against Sacramento.

Both the Skyhawks and the Heat won their games. Woods led Hammond with 24 points.
