Xavier Henry on Tuesday got to do what he wasn’t able to do in college: dunk on Jeff Withey during a game.
The two were freshman at Kansas in the 2009-2010 season — Henry’s only year in college — and Henry just unloaded on his former teammate with a dunk on Tuesday night.
During the third quarter of the Los Angeles Lakers-New Orleans Pelicans game, Henry had the ball beyond the 3-point line, pump-faked, and drove down the lane. He took off for the dunk inside the key and just soared over Withey, who stood still in an attempt to draw a charging foul. Instead, he wound up on a poster.
Like Stu Lantz said, you can’t just stand there hoping to take a charge, you have to challenge that!
