Rodney Williams Jr. says Saturday's alley-oop is his best dunk, and that's saying something [VIDEO]
Williams Jr.'s specialty is poster art.
Rodney Williams Jr. is a basketball artist whose medium happens to be dunks.
During Saturday's Senior Day 73-44 victory over hapless Penn State -- the Nittany Lions didn't score until nearly 12 minutes into the game -- Williams Jr. saved his best and most beautiful for last.
Here's the footage, which says more than 1,000 words ever could:
After the game, Williams said, "The guys said it's my best, so I'm going to go with those guys." His teammates apparently have impeccable aesthetic taste.
That wasn't the only crowd-pleasing jam Williams Jr. put on display during the Penn State game. In the second half, he served up this facial:
Those jams were the 160th and 161st of his U of M career, which will come to an end along with the Gophers' resurgent 2012-13 campaign. With a body of work like the the one he's put together during his four seasons at the U, maybe the Weisman should consider commemorating Williams Jr.'s slam-dunk artistry with an installation.
