Best dunks of the NCAA Tournament video features 4 by Jayhawks

Advertisement

With March Madness now behind us — good, bad or indifferent, it always goes so fast — the folks at CBS are starting to roll out some of their look-back content that covers everything from spectacular plays and buzzer-beating shots to big time dunks and monster blocks.

These are always fun to watch because, when you're in the middle of the madness you become fixated on looking ahead and worrying about what's next — with your bracket, your favorite team or the team(s) you cover — that you sometimes forget some of the most amazing plays and moments that made the first couple of rounds.

Kansas certainly had its share of those moments in this tournament, as the Jayhawks rolled through the first three rounds by a combined 90 points before falling to Oregon in the Elite Eight. Naturally, that Elite Eight loss has received most of the attention in the past week. And understandably so. It's far more common to look back and try to figure out what went wrong or what could've been done differently in these circumstances than it is to look back and celebrate what went right.

For this year's Jayhawks, what went right was a lot and this video features just a few of those moments.

In all, there are six dunks from KU games in this highlight video, three by Jayhawks and two by KU opponents.

The first two come in the 5:15-5:45 range from Josh Jackson, the third, is Jackson's exclamation point against Michigan State in the second round at the 8:22 mark and the fourth, as you probably guessed, is that 360 show stopper from Lagerald Vick against Purdue in the Sweet 16.

Fast forward (and rewind) to those dunks or watch the whole thing for a little trip down memory lane.

Really surprised Vick's didn't make One Shining Moment.
