The dunk has evolved significantly in women’s basketball over the past 20 years or so. In Colorado, Regis Jesuit, 6’1” sophomore Fran Belibi is showing that the upcoming generation of female ballers aren’t just going to sneak in weak-sauce dunks, they are going to punch it.
In a playoff game last night, Belibi shot the passing lane to intercept the opponents’ pass and busted out on a one woman fast break.
She finished by gliding in from the wing for a definitive one-handed throw down. Her school tweeted that it was the first postseason dunk in the history of Colorado girls high school basketball.
