Favorites Geary Claxton (5) and Jeff Brooks (25) had nice stuffs of their own, but the forwards did not impress a panel of judges (including football players Derrick Williams and Jordan Norwood) as much as the little guys.
The dunk contest was only part of the action at the event, which also included player and coach introductions (in costume), a 3-point shooting contest, and 300 pizzas, 500 hot dogs and plenty of Gatorade for the students and season-ticket holders who showed up.
On the news side, junior forward Jamelle Cornley was on crutches and on a scooter for the festivities. He bruised a bone in his left knee in an open scrimmage last Saturday and said he expects to miss at least three games for the Lions, whose regular season tips off at the BJC against St. Francis (Pa.) Nov. 12.
