VIDEO: Duke's Semi Ojeleye can jump high and dunk hard ... wow

By Matt Norlander | College Basketball Writer

I'm not too uppity to pass on posting a ferocioius throwdown from a Duke practice.

The Blue Devils have a ton of star power entering this season, and that's saying something when you consider the overall appeal of college hoops this year and what Duke's given us in the past.

A name not many fans know yet is Semi Ojeleye, a Blue Devils freshman forward who passed up playing in his home state of Kansas to be coached by Coach K. At a recent practice Ojeleye -- who can step out and shoot; he averaged more than 38 points his senior year of high school -- took a half-court alley-oop opportunity off a pass from Tyler Thornton and positively baptized the basketball. The video was uploaded by Duke on Friday and already is creeping in on 200,000 views.

And if you need more evidence that Ojeley's more heralded frosh teammate Jabari Parker is set to be a force, consider this from Duke's exhibition over the weekend. (And, yes, I'm aware it's an exhibition against a school named after what I can only assume is David Bowie.) Wait for play No. 1.
