Xavier Henry to wait until Spring

Posted by Marcus on November 7, 2008

Dunk of the Week: Rodney McGruder

Posted by Marcus on September 30, 2008

Okay, I don’t know which week this was a dunk of, or what the criteria was, or if it would seem as cool without the music playing over the clip, but hey…Kansas State commit Rodney McGruder’s head is near the rim on this breakaway. Not bad for a 6’4″ SF.
