Jan. 5 (UPI) -- Huntington Prep junior guard Jimma Gatwech provided one of the best dunks of the high school basketball season in a win over Blue Ridge School.
Gatwech's slam came in the second quarter of the Irish's 66-61 win against the Barons on Friday in Floyd County, Va. Gatwech stole the ball from Blue Ridge and broke out in the open court. He sprinted coast-to-coast before reaching the paint.
Gatwech put the ball on the floor with his right hand before picking it up with both hands. He then jumped and threw the ball behind his back before putting it back in his right hand for a powerful finish.
This is far from the first time Gatwech has taken flight for a complicated dunk. He also went aerial in December while playing against Our Savior New American for one of his many high-flying highlights this season.
