What’s better than a highlight-reel dunk that gets the crowd erupting? How about two of them.
Oh, and did I mention that they happened on back-to-back baskets for Arizona?
Wildcats teammates Allonzo Trier and Rawle Alkins each sent McKale Memorial Center into a frenzy with incredibly dunks in the second half against Oregon State.
Trier was responsible for the first dunk off a fast break in which Beaver guard Ethan Thompson just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. Check out multiple angles of the play:

But then Alkins pulled off a feat that’s normally reserved for dunk contests for Arizona’s next bucket after a series of turnovers. Watch his reverse finish below:

There’s only one thing we can ask ourselves now: Which one was better?
