POSTERIZED: Wichita State’s Tekele Cotton wants some attention too (VIDEO)

Jan 22, 2014, 10:05 PM EDT

Wichita State is top five in the country, and all anyone talks about is how good Fred VanVleet is and how improved Ron Baker is and how talented Cleanthony Early is.

Well, Tekele Cotton is the team’s best defender and their heart and soul. He wants some attention, too.

He’ll get it after this dunk.

Cotton finished with 12 points and the No. 5 Shockers managed to shake off a bad first half to pick up a road win over a scrappy Illinois State team, 70-55. The Shockers are now 20-0 on the season.

    Wichita State has always been a physical team (just ask Pitt and Ohio State from last year’s NCAA), but check out the video and note how Tekele overcame a clear and strong foul against his dunking arm, that wasn’t called. Nobody is complaining, but it makes the dunk that much more incredible. It appears that Tekele, at only 6’2″ going up against a 6’9″ forward, had to stretch as high and as late as he could to overcome the defenders outstretched arm. Tekele is a junior. See you in Arlington this year, and see you again next year!! Yee-haw!
