WATCH: Texas' Kerwin Roach dunks over his mom at Texas Tip-Off

College basketball hasn't officially started yet, but the crazy dunks sure have. 

Texas joined in on the preseason fun during their Texas Tip-Off Wednesday night, when junior guard Kerwin Roach II used an unlikely prop in the Longhorns' team dunk contest: His mom. 

Roach executed the dunk perfectly, not even touching his mom, and good thing, too, since she may not have been too pleased otherwise.

According to Roach, his mom made it clear that even being able to pull off incredible dunks won't keep you from potentially being grounded.

Roach is no stranger to posterizing dunks. In 2015, he threw down a monster dunk during Texas' matchup with UT-Austin, leading to Bleacher Report declaring him as an early front-runner for Dunk of the Year. Watch the insane dunk here:

The Longhorns start the season at home on Nov. 10 against Northwestern State and hope to improve from a below average 2016-17 season, where they finished 11-22. The athleticism of Roach and others on the team may just help them to a winning record.
