Louisville Could Lead The Country In Dunks This Season

Some folks find it hard to believe that Chane Behanan tied Pervis Ellison’s single season slam dunk record of 59 in 2012-13. Although there are plenty of slam dunks from Behanan last season that we remember, there were also a fair share of missed layups and dunks as well.

In just two seasons with the Louisville program, Behanan has 109 slam dunks, which ranks for fifth all time in school history. If Behanan plays for two more seasons with the program, he’s on pace to shatter Ellison’s record of 162 dunks.

Chane Behanan isn’t the only one who dunked his way into the Louisville record books last season. Montrezl Harrell finished his freshman campaign with 43 dunks which is the seventh best single season for dunks in the history of the program.

43 of Montrezl Harrell’s 97 field goals on the season were slam dunks.  That is truly an amazing stat. He managed to get a total of 43 dunks in just 16-minutes per game. He’ll have a much more increased role this season which means Harrell could easily shatter Behanan’s single season record of 59.

There’s no reason to think that Louisville can’t lead the country in dunks once Chane Behanan returns to the team.
