Wagner’s Josh Thompson jumps over his parents

Oct 12, 2012, 11:22 PM EDT


Last year at as a junior, Wagner forward Josh Thompson jumped over his mother, Diane, to win his team’s dunk contest at “Madness Before Midnight.”

Fast forward a year and Thompson wanted to get his father in on the fun, as the 6-foot-5 senior leaped over both of his parents. Thompson earned a share of the Madness Before Midnight Dunk Championship.

Thompson has his parents stay back-to-back and on the way up, he appears to hit his father in the face with his right leg. Thompson hit the deck, but did complete the dunk. Last season, the dunk over his mother received national attention.

As a junior, Thompson averaged 4.2 points and 2.9 rebounds per game.

    Stupid. Enough with the props, better still, enough of the slam dunk contests. They’re tired, old and increasingly boring.
