VIDEO: Green Bay's 5-foot-11 Keifer Sykes has unreal hops
This is spectacular.
Keifer Sykes, a point guard for Green Bay who we've told you about previously, is one of the most productive mid-major players in the country (averaging 20.4 points, 5.3 assists, 3.6 rebounds). And when you're 5-foot-11 and can hop like THAT, you become one of the most entertaining as well. Sykes threw down two dunks Sunday in the Phoenix's 69-64 win at Illinois-Chicago. Green Bay is now 15-3 and has won 10 in a row.
I've watched that alley-oop video 10 times. It must be something special to be privileged with that sort of jumping ability when you're that "short."
The best news? Green Bay is the best team in the Horizon this season. It has a center in Alec Brown who could be drafted, as he is 7-foot-1. So we could/should see more of this team come March. I'm all for it.
