Montrezl Harrell Breaks UofL Single Season Dunk Record

Montrezl Harrell

If I am not mistaken, the University of Louisville was the first school to start keeping track of dunks as a stat. After all, we did have the Doctors of Dunk in 1980 led by Darrell Griffith when the Cards won their first National Championship. Entering Tuesday night’s game against South Florida, sophomore Montrezl Harrell had 59 dunks on the season, which tied him with Chane Behanan (2012-13) and Pervis Ellison (1987-88) for the most dunks in a single season at UofL. He dunked 4 times against South Florida (Cards won 80-54), giving him 63 and moving him into 1st place all by himself.

“It’s really remarkable that he set this record as a sophomore,” Louisville coach Rick Pitino said. “And especially when you consider that he didn’t play that much as a freshman so for him to set it as a sophomore is really something.”

He now has 107 dunks in his short career at UofL, moving him into 6th place on the career list.
