Point guard Kyle Anderson keyed UCLA’s Pac-12 quarterfinal win with what may have been his most athletic play ever: a thunderous dunk over Oregon’s Richard Amardi.
The sophomore said before that point, he felt has if he “didn’t have an effect on the game at all.” The slam gave the Bruins a 37-35 lead going into halftime of the 82-63 win. UCLA then opened the second half with an 18-4 run.
Hardly known for his athleticism, the player known as “Slo Mo” was asked if he’d ever dunked like that in his life: “Nah, not like that. That was pretty nasty.”
