Transferring to Lake Clifton from DeMatha for his senior basketball season, standout guard Josh Selby kept Baltimore City basketball fans on the edge of their seats with rim-rattling dunks, helping him earn All-Metro Player of the Year honors.
On Tuesday night, Selby took his high-flying act to the national stage when he won the 2010 Powerade Jam Fest in Columbus, Ohio. The dunk contest, which featured eight of the top high school players, was part of the McDonald's All-American Game festivities and was broadcasted on ESPN.
Selby was one of four participants to advance to the championship round. On his first attempt in the finals, he made his move to the rim and then put the ball between his legs before coming down with a power jam that scored a perfect 70 points with all seven judges awarding 10s. After scoring a 61 on his second dunk, he won the contest with a combined score of 131.
