Watch: Mo Bamba redefines getting above the rim with crazy dunk

Texas freshman Mo Bamba redefined what it means to go above the rim during Tuesday night's game against VCU.

Bamba, a 6-foot-11 center with a wingspan over 7 1/2 feet, got the ball at half-court and only needed two dribbles before he took flight from just inside the free throw line.

Rams forward Khris Lane just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time when Bamba was coming down the lane. On the dunk, his armpit was level with the rim with the ball elevated at the top of the backboard, if you can believe that.

Still skeptical? Watch the replay of the insane dunk here:
