He had this dunk over Marist's Chavaughn Lewis in the first half at the Hynes Center in New Rochelle, N.Y.:
Amayo began his dunk from outside of the painted area while Lewis attempted to draw a charge. The Marist big man was instead called for a blocking foul, though Amayo missed the and-1 attempt.
Iona claimed Amayo took off almost 11 feet from the hoop:
