Michigan St.'s Miles Bridges dazzles with reverse dunk in debut

It didn't take long for Michigan State freshman Miles Bridges to make some noise at the collegiate level.

Less than four minutes into his Spartans debut against Arizona Friday night in Honolulu, Bridges took a pass from the baseline, drove by a Wildcat defender and put down a vicious reverse slam for his third bucket of the game.
