Video: Memphis’ Joe Jackson Has Windmill Fail
January 30th, 2014| by Lost Lettermen
With his 22nd-ranked Memphis team trying to hold off a game UCF squad on the road on Wednesday, Tigers guard Joe Jackson tried to silence the Knights’ home crowd with a breakaway, windmill dunk. Instead, he did the exact opposite.
After Jackson missed the slam, UCF took it the other way, and forward Tristan Spurlock brought the CFE Arena crowd to its feet with a powerful, putback dunk on a missed 3-pointer.
Thankfully for Jackson, the sequence wasn’t a complete momentum-turner as the Tigers held on for a 69-59 win.
We still have a feeling coach Josh Pastner told Jackson to save the windmill dunks for slam dunk contests.
