By the slimmest of margins, Cal State Fullerton's Gerard Anderson has pulled it off. Both of Anderson's dunks that were included in the 2009/10 NCAA Dunk of the Year Tournament have made it through to the finals. But it wasn't easy - Anderson's first dunk edged out Seattle's Charles Garcia by receiving only 50.8% of the votes (he had an easier time with Lance Stephenson, garnering 71% of the votes in their matchup). So we know that Anderson will win this dunk competition - but which dunk of his will reign supreme?
Same voting rules as last round: you, the reader, vote for which dunk is the best between each pair (please only vote once per round - no ballot stuffing & if you don't enter an e-mail address, your vote won't count). Each round of voting will be open for a week and we'll continue until we have crowned our champion. And, as an added incentive to vote, there will be prizes.
SLAM magazine, the greatest basketball mag on the planet (due in no small part to my elegant prose frequently gracing its pages) has donated a SLAM prize pack (t-shirt, magazines, etc.) as a prize and, as well, we'll also be giving away the always stylish Hoops Manifesto t-shirts. Every time you vote on a dunk you will be entered in the draw for a prize. To earn additional entries, retweet this article on Twitter or post a link on your Facebook page and we'll give you an extra entry in the draw.
Without further ado, let the finals begin!
Voting for the final round ends Sunday, May 6th at midnight Eastern. Voting ballot at the bottom of the article.
