Andy Lucien, a 6-foot-5 junior from North Olmsted High in the Cleveland area, has become a viral sensation thanks to a vicious dunk he threw down Friday. ESPN's SportsCenter was among the notable outlets to showcase the most spectacular of Lucien's 19 points in a 50-32 win against Westlake.
And as tremendous as the dunk was, true basketball aficionados will appreciate how Lucien set himself up with a slick crossover dribble to split a double team. Here is the video via Team Flight Brothers:
Lucien, as you might suspect, has been blown away by the national attention.
So on team stream there's a story about tiger woods, then on about Vince Wilfork, and then, oh look, it's Andy Lucien
