Hendrix dunks all over UC Davis to highlight New Mexico win
Vante Hendrix of Anchorage took flight for four dunks, including an icing-on-the-cake slam in the final seconds, to lift the University of New Mexico men’s basketball team to a 74-69 victory over UC Davis at The Pit in Albuquerque.
The sophomore transfer finished with a season-high 13 points in this just his third game with the Lobos.
Hendrix, of West High fame, also had season highs in rebounds (7), assists (2) and steals (2).
In the final 20 seconds he twice made plays that led to points.
First, he grabbed on offensive rebound that led to him getting fouled and going to the free-throw line, where he split a pair with 17 seconds left.
Then he stole the ball and midcourt and raced in for a thunderous one-handed jam to seal the deal with 6.6 seconds left.
And here's the play that SEALED IT! A steal and a dunk from Hendrix for the 74-69 final. #GoLobos pic.twitter.com/CdJMbrD1pn
