Basketball season is in full swing and it’s nice to see exciting basketball plays back on TV. If you’re a huge basketball fan, I have a video for you. If you’re a pretty big basketball fan, I have the video for you. If you don’t really care about basketball, yes, I still have an amazing basketball video for you. Have you ever seen a 5-foot-8 basketball player complete a dunk? Yeah, probably Spudd Webb or Mugsy Bogues. Well, have you ever seen a 5-foot-8 player throw down a 360 alley-oop to himself? Yeah, you should probably check out this video.

As a basketball fan, I can honestly say this might be the coolest thing I have seen on a basketball court in a while. This kid defies gravity and throws down one of the best dunks a short players has ever done in a collegiate dunk competition. The kid’s name is Josh Kioh and he is a guard who plays for Adams State University. The kid might want to look at transferring to a major college because he clearly has some talent behind that judge-a-book-by-its-cover height. Many people would look at him and just assume he is a point guard who’s there just for his quickness and his passing skills — not many people would be able to guess that he could thrown down with the best like he did. Great work by Kioh on this play and let’s hope we see some more highlights coming out of Adams State in the near future.
