Brown Trailing By Two Percent With Championship Voting Ending At Noon
March 18, 2013
CHICAGO - With voting ending at noon today, Illinois State senior guard Tyler Brown is narrowly trailing, 51 percent-to-49 percent, behind High Point's Corey Law in the championship round of the State Farm Dark Horse Dunker Competition. As time winds down, every single fan vote makes a difference.
If Brown receives more fan votes than Law, he will win the contest and secure a spot in the Denny's Slam Dunk Competition, televised live on ESPN, during the NCAA Final Four weekend in Atlanta, April 4 at 6 p.m. CST. Fans are allowed to vote once per day for Brown by visiting the competition's official Facebook page: facebook.com/CollegeSlam, with final voting ending today at noon.
Sixteen dunkers from across the country were initially chosen to compete in the State Farm Dark Horse Dunker Facebook bracket, which is a five-week knockout competition. Brown is one of two dunkers still remaining in the contest at the end of the five-week voting period.
While he might be known first for his three-point shooting and defense, Brown's dunking abilities are equally impressive. In his submission video, Brown bounces an alley-oop to himself and finishes with a 360-degree dunk.
