Alaska doesn’t have the most guys playing NCAA D1 basketball in the country, but per capita we might have the most high-flying dunkers.
Anchorage’s Kwintin Williams of the University of Connecticut is already a YouTube sensation because of his 46-inch vertical jump and amazingly acrobatic slams.
He is a human highlight reel.

The 6-foot-7 senior is the kind of player you can’t take your eyes off when he’s on the court because he can do something spectacular in an instant.
Defenders beware: Williams is a threat to posterize you at any time.
Guards, forwards, centers – no one is safe.
Williams might be the captain of Flight 907, but don’t sleep on co-pilots Devonaire Doutrive and Bentiu Panoam of Anchorage.
Doutrive, of West High fame, is a true freshman at the University of Arizona and he wasted no time proving a point at the annual Blue-Red Game.

He’s ready to contribute immediately.
The 6-foot-5 guard played spirited minutes on both ends of the floor, hounding ballhandlers and attacking the rim.
“The best is yet to come for Devonaire,” Arizona coach Sean Miller said.
Doutrive was also a finalist in his team’s dunk contest.
Panoam, of Bartlett High fame, is the smallest player in this Alaska dunk crew but don’t kid yourself, the junior transfer at the University of North Dakota can jump out of the gym.

The 6-foot-2 guard has always had bounce, but not like this.
Panoam should be fun to watch on the break this season because his quickness and instincts make him a steal-and-slam waiting to happen.
