Mercyhurst University basketball player Jonathan Ouegnin has made the Final Four.
Actually, the 6-foot 4-inch junior guard has made the semifinals of a national college dunk of the year contest being conducted online by the website hoopsmanifesto.com.
Ouegnin made a spectacular dunk (check out the video below) Feb. 20 during the Lakers’ win over rival Gannon. ESPN’s Sportscenter show featured the dunk in its Top 10.
His dunk was one of 16 involved in the opening round of the contest. Ouegnin won his first-round matchup against Detroit’s Doug Anderson 58 percent to 42 percent. Ouegnin then won his quarterfinal matchup last week by a single vote over East Carolina’s Maurice Kemp.
In the other semifinal, Jacksonville’s Daniel Skinner faces Eastern Kentucky’s Marcus Lewis.
This is the fourth year the site has run the contest.
Again, here’s video of Ouegnin’s memorable dunk:
