2012/13 College Dunk of the Year Tournament: Round 1

 

grant hill 1991 ncaa title game alley-oop

It's back.  The Hoops Manifesto's Fourth Annual NCAA/College Dunk of the Year Tournament is back (Cal State Fullerton's Gerard Anderson won in 09/10; Oregon State's Jared Cunningham in 10/11; Nevada's Olek Czyz last year).  We've selected 16 of the best dunks from the 2012/13 college basketball season and have paired them up in a single elimination tournament. The rules are pretty simple: you, the reader, vote for which dunk is the best between each pair (please only vote once per dunk – no ballot stuffing – that's why a valid e-mail address is required for each voting ballot). Each round of voting will be open for a week and we'll continue until we have crowned our champion.

So let's get the show on the road – voting for Round 1 ends this Sunday at midnight Eastern.
