Dez Wells’s alley-oop against Morehead State

Here’s Alex Prewitt, writing about what was likely the most memorable moment from Maryland’s blowout win over Morehead State Monday night:

[Dez] Wells finished with eight points in his home debut since transferring from Xavier this offseason, including a Superman-like slam off a high feed from Pe’Shon Howard in transition. The high-flier snatched the pass behind his head, cocked back and deposited a thunderous slam that sent 8,724 fans screaming in delight and put the Terps up 16-7.

And here is the dunk. It comes at around the 30-second mark of this highlight package.
