Penn State Basketball: Josh Reaves Throws Down Another SportsCenter Top 10 Dunk

by on February 08, 2018 3:20 PM

Josh Reaves was 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. The display of athleticism was enough for the junior forward to make his way into the SportsCenter Top 10 for the second time in five days.




Reaves previously made the segment on ESPN’s flagship program on Saturday, when came up with another highlight-reel dunk as Pat Chambers’ squad demolished visiting Iowa. 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, winning four of the last five. In his first game back, he helped take down Ohio State 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 airing on BTN. Maybe Reaves is destined for yet another Top 10 play.
