When we think of Duke’s greatest dunks, we have a few go-tos: Gene Banks’ massive windmill dunk over Ralph Sampson. Phil Henderson’s stunner over Alonzo Mourning. Dante Jones’s pushups after his massive dunk over Virginia.

Those are all contenders, but so is this one: the alley-oop that Bobby Hurley threw to Grant Hill.

It was too high - everyone could see that - and there’s was no way Hill could get it.

Only he did.

And once he did, it was clear that Duke was not going to waste the massive upset over UNLV to get to the finals. There was no way Duke was going to let Kansas win this game.

Check it out. It’s a phenomenal play - still.
