That dunk was one of the best I've ever seen, and he deserved every bit of glory he got.

I would have liked to see what he could have done in a close game.

It was great to set him get time and some points. He's a great Aggie even without a lot of minutes!

Best part of the game was all the time he got on the floor, along with some good production. It was awesome.

He didn’t just fall down, he fell down and then acted like he was having a seizure, pretty good stuff.

That dunk from Grootfaam was very Jardine-esque.

Saw him this morning loading his car by campus, did a quick u turn and told him that I loved the monster jam and was very happy for him. He said “bro, I’m Ajani Carter, I don’t play basketball.” So humble.

Instant legendary Spectrum moment. Really awesome.

The game last night was one of the funnest games I’ve attended in awhile despite being such a blowout beatdown. The students were outstanding, the seniors got great recognition, the players all looked like they were having a blast and few different players not named Sam made 3-point shots. It was just a big celebration and a great way for the seniors to close out their careers in the Spectrum. Very enjoyable.

I could not agree more it was one of the funner games I have attended in awhile. One thing I loved about the team last night was there intensity they came out of the gate and they had the look on their face like we are just going to pound you guys and show no mercy. I love watching coach Smith even in the second half still keeping on top of the guys telling them to show intensity it was a joy to watch.

As much as I loved Grootfaam's dunk, I don't think it's in the same stratosphere as Jardine's. Best dunk of all time given the opponent, the significance of the game, and the momentum swing it caused. Not to mention the silence that followed in the gym.

I don’t think Jardine‘s dunk was the best of all time. For me, that honor will always belong to Troy Rolle. Electrifying dunk to break open a close game to seal an undefeated season.

Groot’s was nice, but even “The Butler Did It!” was bigger and better.
