USU basketball: Kyisean Reed named a finalist for State Farm Dark Horse Dunker Competition
Utah State’s Kyisean Reed is a finalist for the “State Farm Dark Horse Dunker” competition, Intersport announced Monday.
The winner will participate in the Denny’s Slam Dunk Competition at the State Farm College Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships in Atlanta at 5 p.m. MT on April 4 on ESPN. Sixteen dunkers have been selected to compete in the “State Farm Dark Horse Dunker” Facebook bracket, which is a five-week knockout competition. Fans will determine the winner by voting during each round on the official Facebook page.
Each of the 16 finalists are slotted against another candidate in the bracket. Fans can access the bracket, watch video of each dunker and vote for their choice starting Monday, Feb. 11. Fans can vote one time per day. The first round will last two weeks until Monday, February 25 at 11:59 a.m. CT. At that time, the dunker with more votes in each match-up will move on to the second round.
The player left standing at the end of the competition on March 18 will be invited to participate in the Atlanta Final Four weekend for the College Slam Dunk contest.
Reed is out for the season with a knee injury sustained on Jan. 17.
