Johnathan Motley dunks all over Jamari Traylor, called for charge (Video)
Baylor forward Johnathan Motley brought us what would have been one of the dunks of the college basketball season on Wednesday night, but he was called for a charge. It looks to me like Motley got robbed.
The victim, Kansas forward Jamari Traylor, was fortunate enough to draw the foul. It may not prevent him from ending up on a poster. Let’s take a look at the moment Motley began the process of the dunk:
As you can see, Traylor was nowhere near being in position when Motley picked up his dribble. He hadn’t even set his feet yet after Motley took his first step:
Traylor should have been called for a blocking foul. While that wasn’t quite as good as the dunk we saw from this Notre Dame player recently, Motley should have been awarded the slam and a free throw.
