Keion Bell's dynamic dunk

October 22, 2009 |  5:01 pm

Keion Bell won Pepperdine's annual Blue & Orange Madness dunk contest, and it wasn't even close.

The 6-3 sophomore positioned five teammates in a line between the basket and the free-throw line, then strolled out toward midcourt, sprinted toward the basket, soared over all of them, and stuffed the ball over the rim and into the net, much to the delight of a large crowd at Firestone Fieldhouse.

Hard to believe? Watch it above. 

Bell is 6 feet 3. Of the teammates he jumped over, four are 6-2 and the other is 6-1.

Bell, a Pasadena High product, made the West Coast Conference all-freshman team last season after leading the Waves with averages of 12.9 points, 2.2 assists and 1.5 steals.
