TYRUS Hill said his dunk at the start of the third quarter was the best dunk he has executed by far in his young career.
Hill was the talk of the UAAP on Saturday when he had jaw-dropping dunk against University of Santo Tomas in a Season 80 matchup with the Falcons on Saturday. It came at the beginning of the third period when the high-flying Falcons rookie soared over Growling Tigers big man Jeepy Faundo for what Hill called one of his best slams so far.
"My first dunk is probably one of my nastiest dunks I had so far in my career," said Hill. "I felt it. I felt good. I was super hyped after that."
The 6-foot-5 Hill said he got a good look at his dunk after the game where his teammates showed it to him in the dugout.
"I didn't see it. They showed the video on Facebook and Twitter. They showed it to me in the locker room. The bench went crazy. I love those guys," said Hill.
The Adamson rookie said when he took off, he already knew that he will be able to execute the dunk.
"I looked over and there was an open lane. I jabstepped to the left. I crossed over to the right. And I just took flight. I knew there was someone coming at me. It's going to be late because I'm quicker. As soon as I jumped, it was over," said Hill.
Despite declaring it as one of the best dunks in his career, Hill said he still has a lot in his sleeves.
"Of course. You'll see way more than that," he said.
