Justyn Mutts dunking on (NBA player) Victor Oladipo in 2016 - VIDEO


I was looking at whatever I could find on Bamisile on the web earlier this week after reading Wabissa's recent glowing praise of him. Can't wait to see that young man lace 'em up this season and see what he can do by the end of the season.

Then I read a Collegiate Times article from Nov 2nd - HEADLINE: Previewing the Hokies' 2020 Basketball Rotation -- that mentioned that Mutts isn't "likely to be part of the rotation this season." I've seen some posters on this board talk about Mutts as a possible starter. Not sure what's going to happen with Mutts, and it sounds like all kinds of guys might get a chance to start depending on match-ups. I did find this attached link showing Mutts dunking on Oladipo and it's fun so I'd thought I'd share. I know this isn't a barometer on what Mutts could bring to the table in an actual game but I do think he'll help with rebounding this year when he's in the game.

Remembering Hokies teams from the past when it felt like some seasons we only had one 3-point specialist on the team (A.D. Vassallo) or one guy who could posterize people on the team (Deron Washington), and feeling like we've got a bevy of guys that can bang it in from downtown and at least 3 guys (Bamisile, Mutts and Radford) who might be able to posterize some people in the lane. Also have read a few accounts of Hokies players talking about Cartier Diarra's freakish athleticism (which lead me to find a windmill dunk of his vs. Kansas in 2019 (cut and paste this one if you're interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mz63TY_-lQI). UPDATE: I've now watched several Diarra highlight videos on YouTube and the guy can DEFINITELY finish in the lane. Very quick first step.

Can't wait for this year's team to hit the floor. I had a blast watching them last year and think they should be a better team this year. Hope we knock off a few we aren't supposed to and continue to get better.
