VIDEOS: Raphiel Putney becoming one of the country's best dunkers

By Matt Norlander | College Basketball Writer

Planting his left foot at the "1" of the "A10" logo, just inside the foul line, UMass' Raphiael Putney put Youngstown State's Josh Chojnacki on a poster over the weekend. That slam is both smooth and savage.

UMass -- my against-the-grain pick to win the A-10 this year -- is now 3-0 after knocking off previously undefeated Youngstown State on Sunday, 85-69. By beating Boston College, LSU and Youngstown State, the Minutemen have one of the better slate of scalps to start this season.

And it's nice to see this team has some highlight reel-worthy material. Here's waht Putney did nearly a week ago in the team's win over LSU.
