Miami point guard Chris Lykes is only 5-foot-7, but he’s extremely athletic. Preparing for the Hurricanes’ first-round NCAA Tournament game against Loyola-Chicago, Lykes threw down a wicked slam in practice.

Guys that size shouldn’t be able dunk a basketball off a bounce, but Lykes is special. With Bruce Brown out for an extended period, Lykes has had to provide a jolt for the Miami offense, and he’s delivered. The freshman is averaging 9.6 points per game and has made 47 3-pointers on the year.
