Josh Reaves Lands At No. 5 In SportsCenter Top 10 With Monster Dunk

Josh Reaves is back at it again for the Nittany Lions. During Penn State’s 74-70 victory over Maryland on Wednesday night, Tony Carr found a slashing Reaves who threw it down with authority. This display of athleticism was enough for the junior forward to make his way into the SportsCenter Top 10.

This is the second time Reaves has been featured on the famous segment of ESPN’s flagship program. Reaves came up with another highlight-reel dunk as Pat Chambers’ squad demolished a visiting Iowa team on Saturday. This time, Lamar Stevens found the cutting Reaves who threw it down over Iowa’s 6’11 big man Jack Nudge.

Just to make it that much sweeter, Reaves did it through some contact.

Since missing a string of games for academic reasons, Reaves has been a crucial element to the squad’s recent success. In his first game back, he helped take down a terrific Ohio State squad in Columbus. Following the Nittany Lions’ win over Maryland, Lamar Stevens called Josh Reaves “heart and soul of this team.”

You can catch Reaves and the rest of the Nittany Lions in action on Sunday at 7 p.m. when they travel to Illinois for another Big Ten matchup. Maybe Reaves is destined for yet another Top 10 play.
