One Frame At A Time: Arkansas

Since there are only three of these today I'm not going to bother with the screencap/lightbox thing—if you need to stop the animation for the sake of bandwith, hit 'escape'.

Pretty nice play by the team's second-best freshman/"weak spot".

[Hit the jump for Burke's throwdown, panda.]

Not shown: really, really lame technical foul call.

He will literally rip your face off.

His chin never even came close to the rim and it was clear after he stopped his momentum that he was looking to the ground for a safe place to land. I think the ref called it because of how high his feet got, almost planking the rim. Awesome Dunk for a kid who rarely does flush it and still got him on the SC highlight too!

Two thoughts:

1.  Ace, why are you removing your pants when discussing 18-year-old freshman?  Gross.

2.  I was watching that game with my 4-year-old son and he cracked up every time he saw that panda.  That costume in the middle of the maize was epic!  I hope that person is an MGoUser because I will reward him/her all the MGoPoints.

I was at the game and it was my first time in Crisler since it had been updated. The first thing I noticed when I got to my seat was the panda, way more impressive than any of the new shiny bits. Although the intro was really cool, I've never been that excited to be at a Michigan basketball game.

completely missed GR getting whacked in the head as he went in the for the dunk-- at first glance, I thought it was just a graze, but you can really see his head snap back.  Ouch.

  Does anyone else find it odd that Burke is right handed but jumped off his right foot for that sweet two handed jam?  I know when I dunk in my dreams, I always leap off my left foot.  Does ambidexterity apply to feet also?  Just one more of Trey's many talents. 

  I am having increasing difficulty controlling my excitement for this Big Ten basketball season.  It will indeed be a Happy New Year for Wolverine fans!!

I noticed the same thing as you (Trey dunking off right foot) and was impressed.   In younger years when I could capably dunk, I was definitely better launching off my left foot and dunking right or two-handed.   I seriously had to train myself to launch off my right foot for a left handed dunk.   I think Trey may be slightly more athletically gifted than I ever was.

You're supposed to jump with the foot that is opposite of the hand you are using to shoot the layup/dunk.  So for a right-handed layup or dunk, you'd jump off your left foot, and vice versa for a left-handed layup/dunk.

If you are dunking with two hands, you typically would either jump with two feet, or with the foot you are more used to dunking/laying-up with - i.e. left foot for righties, right foot for lefties.
