All-Star Game: Lewis claims perfect Slam Dunk final - Dec 25, 2012

Bennie Lewis
Melbourne Tigers high-flyer Benny Lewis (203-G/F-87, college: Benedict) soared to a memorable win in the NBL All-Star slam dunk competition at Adelaide Arena, edging past jet-heeled Wollongong Hawk Lance Hurdle on a thrilling countback.

Benny Lewis and Hurdle were the top qualifiers for the final, which an under-pressure Benny Lewis claimed after missing his first two attempts and having to match Hurdle's perfect 30/30 score.

The lanky Tiger claimed victory with a perfect score of his own when he conjured a magnificent jam from a stand-still back-to-the-basket bounce pass from the three-point line.

With some flourish, Benny Lewis threw it down and hung on the rim, pulling his whole body up like a kid on the monkeybars to notch three 10s from the judges, former 36er greats Mark Davis and Al Green and local politician Kate Ellis.

He needed something special to dethrone Hurdle, who had just pulled off a show-stealer, climbing upstairs with a reverse bounce pass alley-oop from Hawks team-mate Adris Deleon, who threw it from a dozen rows back in the bleachers.

Earlier, Melbourne's Lucas Walker looked a strong contender, starting with an audacious windmill from his own high bounce pass before following up with a fine one-hander from a lob pass, while donning the retro singlet of former dunk champ Brett Rainbow.

New Zealand's Thomas Abercrombie got upstairs with a wrist-locked one-hander before teaming up with Breaker teammate and All-Star Cedric Jackson for a creative power dunk.

Sydney All-Star Darnell Lazare had a few false starts before completing an effortless bounce-passed, two-handed dunk around the rim and a lob-passed double-fister.

Hurdle started superbly with a "Dee Brown" reverse pump and then upped the ante with his second dunk.

He stationed a young lad wearing an over-sized Zac Delaney guernsey in front of the bucket and proceeded to soar over his head and finished with a powerful two-hander after throwing it off the board.

Benny Lewis qualified highest courtesy of a double-pump two-handed windmill which scored 23 and a 360-degree spinning double clutcher which was given a 27, which was enough to get him over the line following the deadlocked finale.
