Capital Classic 3-point and Slam Dunk Contest

Nothing that I haven't really seen before. When it comes to dunk contests, there are no new dunks. The actual contest has turned into the shit-you-do-before-the-dunk dunk contest.

But Isaiah Armwood of Montrose Christian took this year's crown by jumping over seven people one of which was 6' 10" teammate Mouphtaou Yarou.
