Pepperdine guard defies gravity

Mike Miller writes: Pepperdine’s Keion Bell doesn’t care for Sir Isaac Newton. Gravity? Who needs it?

The guard stands just 6-foot-3, yet is known as one of [college basketball’s high fliers][1], capable of throwing down nasty dunks and jaw-dropping moves at any moment. (He also can play a little; Bell’s 18.5 points per game led the Waves last season.)

He [dunked over five people at the school’s Midnight Madness event last year][2].

This year, he upped it to seven — and did it fairly cleanly (just a slight push off). There has to be a hidden trampoline, right?

I’m with the guys at [Rush the Court][3]. Next year, Keion, try dunking over the entire student body. That’ll be a real challenge.
