I don’t know much about the Virginia men’s basketball team, but I know this: The team’s players and fans seemed to enjoy reserve Evan Nolte’s dunk late in the win over Memphis. As seen above, in a photo that ran on A1 of Monday’s Post.
Via Mark Giannotto:
They were never more happy than when the 6-foot-8 Nolte capped off the night with a thunderous dunk in the final minutes, his first slam since high school.
“We call Evan, ‘Take off’ because he dunks once every two years,” Mitchell said with a laugh. “To see him dunk on somebody was huge.”
And via ESPN.com:
Nolte, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward, is most known for providing a perimeter boost. His back-to-back 3-pointers against Coastal Carolina broke open a tight game and made the Cavs loosen up….
Forward Anthony Gill likened the sight of Nolte dunking to an eclipse. With a minute left in the game, Nolte threw down a tomahawk dunk that got the crowd chanting his name.
And, as mentioned, fans got happy.

Anyhow, some of the fans were looking for a gif of the dunk. Here it is. Feel free to run and hug your cubicle mates.
