WEST ORANGE, N.J. — Winning Dunk Contests is nothing new for Derrick Jones.
The 6-foot-7 UNLV-bound wing from Archbishop Carroll (Pa.) won the dunk contest at last year’s Under Armour Elite 24 Game and has even impressed Dominique Wilkins with his dunking exploits.
But on Saturday night at the Mary Kline Classic at West Orange High School, Jones pulled out a truly special slam, jumping over four players, including 7-footer Josh Sharma, to win the Dunk Contest at the event. (Check out the video from Dan Exter.)
“I did it before so I just said I’m going to do it again,” Jones, who was also named Co-MVP of the Senior Game after pouring in 36 points, told SNY.tv, adding that he did a similar dunk in Indiana to win a dunk contest.
