Wisconsin advanced to the Sweet Sixteen on Sunday with their 72-65 win over Oregon, but it could have been 76-65 if sheer awesomeness was duly recognized. On a play that had been blown dead a split-second earlier, Badgers small forward Sam Dekker put the ball through the hoop twice on a single slam dunk.
After Wisconsin’s victory, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers — who is accustomed to scoring points six at a time — offered that he would most like to go up against Dekker in a pickup game.

While Dekker’s bit of hoops magic required an assist by the net, others have put their own spin on the double dunk during contests.
