It was a tale of two dunks for Devlyn Williams – one made and one missed (actually blocked) – in Snider's 68-63 win over Homestead in boys basketball Friday.
The successful one for Williams, a Snider junior, came in the second quarter and started the Panthers on a big run helped produced a 34-20 halftime lead.
"The biggest thing was the dunk Devlyn did tonight," senior Trey'von Covington said. "That made our momentum go up."
Covington and Williams went for back-to-back breakaway dunks early in the second, with Williams' a tomahawk-style flush.
"That was the first time I actually got one like that," Williams said. "The first time the guy took a charge, so I just thought this time if he was going to take a charge I was going to dunk it."
His miss/blocked attempt came in the fourth when he went up against Homestead sophomore standout Caleb Swanigan, who swatted Williams on the attempt.
"Devlyn Williams going up, he challenged him, and Swanigan made a heckuva a block there," Snider coach John Todor said.
