Chris Silva rates A.J. Lawson’s dunk vs. Ole Miss. ‘11 out of 10.’
A.J. Lawson brought the house down Tuesday night.
Providing the highlight to South Carolina’s furious first half run against Ole Miss, Lawson had a put-back slam that nearly took the roof off Colonial Life Arena.
The freshman perfectly sized up a missed Felipe Haase 3-pointer and all but bent the rim — while being fouled. Lawson flexed in celebration as Gamecock fans went nuts.
South Carolina defeated Ole Miss 79-64 behind Lawson’s 15 points, nine rebounds, six assists and three steals.
“When I was in the air and I saw the ball coming my way, I knew I had to catch it,” Lawson said. “Once I caught it, I knew I was going to just flush it in there. And then when it happened, everyone was screaming, my teammates were encouraging me. It was just a good moment.”
“I don’t know where to start,” added USC senior forward Chris Silva. “If I had to rate it, I’d give it an 11 out of 10.”
