Hoops: Southern exposure for Dinos dunking machine

Calgary Dinos forward Henry Bekkering, whom The Best Damn Sports Show and YouTube has turned into a phenomenon, has been profiled by SLAM Online today.

Needless to say, that is unprecedented exposure for a CIS player, so it seemed to merit being passed along. A lot has to happen over the next 10 weeks, but it's almost like the matchup that is almost begging to happen at the Final 8 in Ottawa is now the Dinos and Bekkering against Carleton and Aaron Doornekamp. It would be Bekkering with his viral vertical going up against Doornekamp, who plays that classic big man's based having on a light touch and ability to hit from outside that purists always appreciate.

(Obviously, there's much more depth to both players, but that's a good simplication.)

Meantime, if anyone wants to get Bekkering and St. Francis Xavier's Islam Luiz de Toledo together for a dunk contest, by all means do so.
