East Tennessee State Shows Off Insane Dunking Ability Before NCAA Tournament

2,457

East Tennessee State might not beat Florida in the first round of the 2017 NCAA Tournament. The Buccaneers are a No. 13 seed, after all, and are pegged as 10-point underdogs against the fourth-seeded Gators.

But if Wednesday’s practice was any indication, they should be a whole lot of fun to watch.

ETSU prepared for its tournament opener by throwing down a series of eye-popping dunks at Orlando’s Amway Arena, including one by senior guard A.J. Merriweather (No. 13) that seemed to defy gravity.

Could Merriweather & Co. be the second coming of Dunk City — the 15th-seeded Florida Gulf Coast squad that took the tournament by storm in 2013? We’ll find out when ETSU-Florida tips off at 3:15 p.m. ET on Thursday.
