  Emanuel Terry leaps over a defender to throw down a monster dunk.

Emanuel Terry redefined the term posterized on Wednesday night in Jefferson City, Tn. The Lincoln Memorial superstar threw down the DII basketball dunk of the year, leaping over a Carson-Newman defender and drawing the awe of the nation.

Terry, who earlier this week was named to the Bevo Francis watch list, is having a monster season for the Railsplitters. The 6-foot-9 big man is averaging 18.6 points and 10.7 rebounds per game. Fresh off an upset of No. 1 Queens (NC) that sent the Top 25 into a frenzy, Terry threw down his two most impressive points of the season.

Lincoln Memorial set up a simple in bounds play under the basket. Terry cut to the hoop, and in superhero form, flew over the defender and threw the perfectly placed lob pass through the rim.

Social media exploded. The dunk heard around the internet even made its way to ESPN as the Top Play of the night.
