The best dunker in college basketball hails from the MEAC.

Troy Baxter, a forward at Morgan State, put on a spectacular display Thursday night during the State Farm College Slam Dunk and 3-Point Championships.

Baxter, a 6-9 forward from Tallahassee, Fla., made his mark as one of the top players in the MEAC for Morgan State. The senior, who was named to the All-MEAC First Team and All-Defensive Team, finished the regular season ranked No. 1 in scoring (17.1), No. 3 in blocks (1.7) and entered the MEAC Tournament shooting 44.5 percent from the field and 36.7 percent from 3-point range.
