Saw all those dunks. But I think Ricky’s dunk was the best. Benjamin was waiting for him and he posterized him

Got to see one up close when he threw a dunk down on me while playing in the Mitsubishi Basketball League. Came down through the net and bounced off the top of my head.

Ricky was my second favorite redbird to watch, behind Doug ... always seemed to be having fun.

I saw Rick Lamb drive the baseline on the asphalt court by Watterson Towers. He missed a reverse dunk and hammered it so hard it went about 20 feet in the air.

Weren't Lamb and Cornley called The Bruise Brothers?

The dunk itself was not highly impressive, but the context made it incredible: Ricky Jackson's open court dunk on defending national champion Michigan in the 1990 NCAA tournament to top off an ISU run that tied the game with under two minutes left. The ISU section went nuts, and the crowd, which was largely there to see the following game featuring Loyola-Marymount, swung in behind the 'Birds in cheering for a possible upset.

I am just catching up. I have seen all of the dunks mentioned above. I have to go with Rickie Johnson. Benoit Benjamin was 7'0 tall and Rickie 6'4". Rickie took off from just inside the side of the free throw line. AWESOME memory.
