Watch: Iona's Kelvin Amayo flies high for big dunk vs. Marist

Monday February 9th, 2015

Iona point guard Kelvin Amayo had one of the college basketball season's finest dunks in a win over Marist on Sunday.

Amayo, the Gaels' junior point guard, finished with 10 points, seven rebounds and five assists in Iona's 89-67 win.

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:

Iona (18-6) leads the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference at 11-2 in conference play. The Gaels will travel to Fairfield on Tuesday.
