Sam Thompson went off against Iona, finishing with four highlight-worthy dunks, 20 points and 10 boards.

Here they are, GIFs from the night of a thousand dunks in Dayton. You'll awe at Aaron Craft's hustle, marvel at Shannon Scott dishing the ball and stay to appreciate the Sam Thompson dunk montage.

Dunks and steals make for a most excellent highlight reel.

Has Iona's loudmouth pointguard made any more comments lately?

I don't think so.  Running your mouth about OSU's defense and then throwing up a whopping 9 points will do that.

Yep! I had this discussion with my oldest last night during the game. Never, ever talk crap about your opponent and disrespect them prior to, especially if there is no rivalry.

Momo actually gave Craft props for playing good defense.  All the Iona players and coaches were very complimentary toward OSU after the game.  My favorite quote was from their guard Tavon Sledge:

“Those guys, they looked like they work out every day,” Sledge said.

Do you even lift, bro?

I'be become convinced that Thompson has wings. They are invisible, but I see no other explanation for how a guy can fly like that...

I keep going back and forth on which alley-oop is my favorite, the first one or the one handed one. Has to be the one handed one, right?  Ok. I've convinced myself. 
Sam's fingers have to be sore this morning.

Nacho Guy puts the one-handed one over the top for me.

I was looking forward to Sam Thompson Saturday, but all the other .gifs of the steals & blocks made it even better!

we...looked...great last night...craft and thomas were out with..what? 11 minutes left? Awesome. I just hope they don't get too cocky over this game. We couldn't easily put up 115 with everyone in. Great statement while many squandered their first game to make a splash.

The alley-oop from Craft is spanktakular. Sam jumps before AC lobs the ball.  My favorite is the one handed tomahawk from Shannon. That game last night was a hoot.  Here's to hoping that was the closest score of the entire tourney.

This is excellent, thanks for putting it together. Look at the amazing Sam Thompson third dunk, they guy fly to the rim even before Craft started throwing the ball to him, gotta love the chemistry!!
 
Also, any chance of having share button for this? since it already has 11w logo?
Edit: found the share button on imgur, thanks!

Slam Thompson reminds me of the original "Skywalker", David Thompson.
