NEVADA’S DEONTE BURTON is not a household name yet. But he might be some day.

He unleashed what will likely go down as the dunk of the year during Nevada’s double-overtime win over Boise State.

The dunk came early in the second half and was reminiscent of the dunk by DeAndre Jordan of the Los Angeles Clippers last season that Blake Griffin called the best dunk he had ever seen (Jordan’s dunk was actually an alley-oop).


Adding insult to dunk injury, Ryan Watkins of Boise State was called for a foul on the play.
