Montrezl Harrell will take any opportunity to dunk, even if it means stealing an alley-oop and dunking on his own teammate. Russ Smith passed up a pass to the basket on the break and Van Treese was ready to dunk it home against Rutgers Thursday afternoon in the AAC Tournament, but Harrell used his hops and his wingspan to take the ball and slammed it.
The dunk happened less than a minute into the game.
Rick Pitino said after the game,”I knew it was going to be a good night when we went to throw a lob to Stephan and Monday Montrezl dunked on Stephan, I knew it was our night at that point.”
Van Treese said of the dunk, “I’m not happy about that, I thought he was throwin’ it to me, and I didn’t even see Montrezl and he dunked on me, I was like, “Man, that’s not fair!”
Louisville then went on to win, 92-31. Harrell ended up with 13 points and five rebounds. Van Treese did not score a point, but he did have 10 rebounds.
