Here it is.

On occasion I'll make an involuntary sound when something impressive happens. I clearly remember a guttural "uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh" out of my mouth from press row in Pittsburgh when I went out to see Penn play Cal in the NCAA Tournament and Koko Archibong got dunked on something awful.

More than one time I've woken up my wife accidentally by screaming loudly (despite every intention of staying quiet) on a late night last second basket.

Which leads me to tonight.

Hummer dunks and next thing I know I realize I'm standing up.

I wasn't alone.

On WPRB it was called The Hummer Hammer

The video is great, but it doesn't begin to do justice to what I saw with my own eyes. This kid is something special.

Great photo of the play coming in the essay I'm about to post. Can't think of a better dunk in recent memory. Sorry, Kareem at Columbia via Marcus Schroeder!

Princeton was on the receiving end of two dunks last year that were great by Ivy standards (in consecutive games) - the Kyle Casey baseline drive at Harvard, and the Miles Cartwright garbage-time slam through the middle of the paint at Penn. Pretty sure this tops either of those, though.

I've seen some explosive Hummer slams, but none where he dunked over a defender like that.

I am willing to bet Blake Griffin reviewed this dunk. Stuart is right on - seeing it was special.

@ larry : As I was sitting in Jadwin last night, I wondered if I was watching Hummer or Griffin :)

Best. Princeton. Dunk. Ever.

When all is said and done, Ian Hummer might be the best player not named Bradley to suit up for the Tigers. Ian reminds me of Tyler Hansbrough at UNC in that Hummer just wills himself to make big plays time after time. Thank goodness we have another season to enjoy watching Ian play.

Not sure about "best player not named Bradley" but "best four year Tiger" is certainly within reach.

I'll pencil in a "Kit Mueller vs. Ian Hummer - Tale Of The Tape" for March 2013.
