One of my most memorable dunks was the fan-favorite walk on Eugene Nash.  The student section would start the Eu-Gene chant as soon as we got a lead and go crazy whenever he finally got in to play.  Every time he touched the ball, there would be a huge cheer.  I wish I could remember the game, but he tipped a pass, got a steal and went all alone for a breakaway.  I know I was expecting a layup which would have been fine.  He went up and dunked two-handed and I swear Barnhill turned upside down.  The cheering went on steadily until the end of the game.  His teammates mobbed him after the game.  It was pretty cool. 

Anyone remember the game?

The Qualls putback slam vs UK has to be high on anyone’s list. Body of work he still has the lead I’m thinking. Taller guys like Gafford can make amazing look routine. Something special about a smaller guy soaring for the slam. With Harris to set Gafford up this may be a moot point after this season.

His 2.5 year body of work pales in comparison to the 4 year legacies of many great Hog dunkers.

His first year here, we really underutilized him, based on what he could become.

do you remember his first year?   he didn't belong on the floor and that was a team that was craptastic.   

Qualls' development in his time as a razorback might be the most improvement from any razorback ever in any sport.   Basically made me a believer in Anderson as a talent evaluator and developer. 


and gaffords 1 year of work puts him in the conversation of best ever.  can't wait for him to have 2.

I do remember it, quite well.   Given the speed of his development and the quality of that team, in hindsight he should have played even more, to accelerate his development.

qualls is the best dunker in program history, no question. he didn't just dunk, he punished the rim. That two hand dunk in the SEC championship game was one of the most powerful dunks i've ever seen, even though we lost by 20


He is top 5 but no were near hands down #1....

gotta be Eugene "the dunking machine" Nash! Only player ever with "dunking" in his nickname so I think he wins by default. 

Loved when we would clear the benches when I was a kid  - was definitely a fan favorite.

Surprised no one mentioned Corliss, but I have to go with Brandon Dean.  He was explosive!  Derek Hood is a close 2nd, he stayed above the rim.

Brandon Dean could dunk a mean ball, especially for his size.

In order, 1. Downtown Tony Brown 2. Sonny Weems 3. William Mills
Tony Brown and William Mills are named that many on hogville won't know because they're to young, hell, video wasn't around then, lol.  But they were powerful dunkers, I wish that every Razorback fan today could have witnessed them playing.

Most everyone listed in this thread is/was an amazing dunker.  Dean was great, but more of a leaper than dunker.  Gafford is great but too tall.  Ali Thompson, Weems, Qualls are all in the same kind of category for me.

Personally, my vote is Derek Hood.  His entire Razorback career was a dunk.  Go back and watch some of his highlight videos...no one had as many thunderous dunks as Hood.

I agree with all the names said previously but a personal favorite of mine is Davor Rimac.  He was overshadowed by all the amazing talent from those mid 90's teams but he had some surprising dunks now and then.

Lots of good dunkers over the years.  Tony Brown was strong....wish there were some highlights of him.  Weems, Dean, Howell, Hood...all very good. 

Despite being a dust farter, I still think I'd go with Gafford.  Guys...watch what he did last year.  He attacks the rim with ferocity, dunks in traffic, and probably more than anything else, dunks it every chance he can get.  I get it...he's tall, but who cares?  You can't hold it against him that he doesn't have to jump as high.   

It would be close between he and Qualls, and if you're going on the Hog who dunked on people more than anyone...Qualls.  If it's based on just throwing it down with authority, I think it would be Gafford, with all due respect to all those before them.

Thanks to everyone who posted highlight reels.  Brought back memories.

While he didn’t have a lot of dunks....Guy Whitney’s dunk on the Auburn center was awesome!
Tony Brown has some hops!  I remember they were playing Texas at the Drum and getting beat pretty bad. It was an off night for the Hogs and were frustrated. Late in the game Tony Brown started on a breakaway and threw one down on LaSalle Thompson. I thought the big guy from Texas might have brain damage after that one.

Clearly these kind and  of questions depend on age. The ages of the respondents indicates a fairly young group. Probably most never saw the triplets. Boot, Marvin and Sidney put on some shows. Sid was my fave.

That being said it is disappointing not one mention of US Reed.  But as I said it is an age thing.

Of course Darrel Walker needs to be mentioned

I've mentioned Lang ... I give him style points for as lanky as he was. Yes on Tony Brown. Human Pogo Stick. For a guard Alvin Robertson threw it down nicely. Boot. On this year's team I kinda like Adrio Bailey out of Campti, LA.
