Darius Miller tried to downplay how monstrous his one-handed dunk over Reginald Buckner, the SECâ€™s active leader in blocked shots, was during the first half Saturday even though it keyed a 14-4 run.
Teammates had no trouble, though, describing it.
â€œA dunk like that when the crowd gets into it can change the whole game really. The crowd got into it when Darius made that dunk and we got on a run,â€ Doron Lamb said.
â€œIt just gave us more energy, got the crowd more into and it makes the team feel, especially in this building, like the whole game just shifted. It just helps us and gives us a lot of energy,â€ Terrence Jones said.
Kyle Wiltjer, not one to normally overreact to anything on the court, even got a bit excited.
â€œI like to keep calm, but you canâ€™t after that,â€ Wiltjer said. â€œIt was a great dunk. Iâ€ˆjust hope I was close enough that I am in the clip on (ESPN) SportsCenter tonight because that has to be the top play. Coach drew up that play and he really hammered it down.â€
