The Dunk Heard 'Round the World
Contest Number: 89 Contest Theme: Best of 2013 Lens: Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC HSM Camera: Pentax K-5

One of VCU's most memorable victories came in its game against Butler University in March 2013. Butler had defeated VCU in the Final Four in 2011, and VCU was itching for revenge. Right out of the gate, Briante Weber (#2) stole the ball and ran the length of the court to the basket, culminating in "the dunk heard 'round the world" - it was a moment that VCU basketball fans will remember for a while, probably moreso than VCU's blowout victory over Butler that day.

This photo was shot from press row on the baseline, just to the right of the basket. The shutter speed is a little less than I had wanted, but there was no time to adjust and the results are spectacular nonetheless.
