College Basketball Posterization Produces Epic Photo

The phrase “posterized” gets thrown around a lot whenever a big dunk is involved, but often times the dunk in quesiton doesn’t actually end up on a poster. That being said, if there’s a dunk this year that deserves its own poster, it’s the one you see above thrown down by Tristan Carey of Longwood University in a game this week.

While the dunk was pretty good, the photo it produced – captured by the president of Longwood’s Photo Club, Mike Kropf – is even better. Seriously…like, I would buy this poster:

Between the soaring Carey, the powerful slam and – my personal favorite – the face of the victimized defender, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better slam photo than this one. Great work by Carey and Kropf.
