5-11 Clark Atlanta guard soars for outrageous dunk

Nothing was getting in the way of Derek Harper and the rim. Not the defender, and certainly not gravity.

The 5-foot-11 senior at Division II Clark Atlanta threw down one of the most vicious dunks you will ever see, whether it's in-game or during practice.

It's hard to pick out what the most incredible part of this jam is; whether it's the fact that Harper could throw it down with such authority at his height, the amount of air he got, or the way he obliterated the poor defender standing in the paint for an and-1.

Of the many amazing reactions from his teammates, take a look at No. 32 at the bottom of the screen. It would appear the gravity that Harper took out of the air was transferred directly onto his body.

Will there be a better dunk this year? The mark has certainly been set very high.
