And then there were eight. We selected 16 of the best dunks from the 2013/14 college basketball season and paired them up in a single elimination tournament. Round 1 is in the books, and the field has been cut in half; the quarterfinals are here.
The rules are pretty simple: you, the reader, vote for which dunk is the best between each pair (please only vote once per day – 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 The Quarterfinals ends this Sunday at midnight Eastern.
