Indiana freshman dunks over coach Tom Crean

Only a couple weeks out from the start of the 2016-17 college basketball season, programs across the country continue to host their own form of Midnight Madness to get fans and students pumped up for the year ahead.

And there’s arguably no better way to do so than with some high-flying dunks.

Freshman guard Curtis Jones stole the spotlight at Indiana’s annual “Hoosier Hysteria” Saturday night when he leaped over Hoosiers head coach Tom Crean and finished a one-handed jam as part of the night’s dunk contest.

Unfortunately, Crean’s height isn’t listed on Indiana Athletics’ page, but Jones’ dunk certainly passes the eye test as an impressive finish nonetheless.

It’s obvious that the freshman has plenty of physical tools entering his debut season. Crean has to hope this skillset translates to success in game action.
