UCLA ended up losing its first game of the season, at the hands of undefeated Missouri, 80-71, on Saturday afternoon in Columbia. But did you see the dunk freshman guard Zach LaVine had toward the end of the first half?
A Missouri player slipped near halfcourt, as the intended pass went flying by him. LaVine collected the turnover and had the open floor in front of him. The Mizzou miscue became the Bruins highlight, as the 6-foot-5 freshman elevated and threw down a nasty windmill slam to put the Bruins 38-28 with 2:42 remaining in the first half.
Despite the loss, LaVine came off the bench to scoring 13 points along with three rebounds two assists, two steals and a block in 26 minutes of action. On the season, he’s averaging 14.2 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game.
