From EJ Floreal via CoachCal.com: “What’s up Big Blue Nation? How are you all doing?
I know I’m still hearing about it, so I have to start out talking about that dunk in the Blue-White Scrimmage. If you watched it, I actually stuttered. I was kind of nervous to back-cut because I thought that maybe Willie would make a good move and then I’d just be in the way, but I went and back-cut. He threw me the ball and by that time I was just thinking, “I’m going to dunk it at Rupp.”
When I went up, I didn’t know who was in front of me. I actually thought it was Dominique or something so I was like, “I’ll be fine.” But when I landed, it kind of seemed like everyone breathed in and then exhaled. Usually I scream after a dunk but I couldn’t scream. I was just in shock when I saw it was Julius and Aaron was over there, eyes wide open. Alex couldn’t believe it. KP (assistant coach Kenny Payne) looked right at me and he was just smiling. Hoody went crazy.”
