Mercyhurst University basketball player Jonathan Ouegnin will not win a national college dunk contest being conducted online by hoopsmanifesto.com.

The 6-foot 4-inch junior guard lost to Syracuse’s C.J. Fair in the contest’s semifinals by a voting total of 54 percent to 46 percent. The results of the semifinal round were announced today.

Ouegnin made his spectacular dunk (check out the video below) Feb. 20 during the Lakers’ victory over Gannon.

His dunk was one of 16 entered in the contest’s opening round. He won his first-round matchup against Detroit’s Doug Anderson 58 percent to 42 percent. Ouegnin then won his quarterfinal matchup by a single vote over East Carolina’s Maurice Kemp.

In the other semifinal, Eastern Kentucky’s Marcus Lewis beat Jacksonville’s Daniel Skinner 57 percent to 43 percent.

Again, here’s video of Ouegnin’s dunk:
