C.J. Fair seems to be good for one or two monster dunks each season. He got his first of the season on Monday against Minnesota in the Maui Invitational. With a little over four minutes left in the first half, Fair took a pass Baye Kieta at the top of the lane.
He took a strong dribble and leaped into the air towards the basket. Fair threw down the dunk with strength and ferocity. Austin Hollins attempted to make a play on the ball, but missed badly and hit Fair across the face.
No foul was called, but the contact was clearly evident as Fair was left with a gash on his right cheek that oozed with blood. He came out of the game briefly, and was given a bandage to stop the bleeding.
Fair returned shortly after that, and came out in the second half with a vengeance. In a key 13-2 run after intermission, Fair had eight of those points as the Orange would never trail in the final frame.
