Opponent: Stetson

There is arguably no more serviceable sixth man in the country at the moment than Jack White. The Duke basketball junior captain can play three-or-more positions and contribute to every column on a box score.

And despite a slew of high-flyers on this team that may overshadow his athleticism, White has shown that he can also contribute in ways that require an impressive vertical leap.

Case in point: With about six minutes to play in the first half of a home game against Stetson and the Blue Devils already well on their way to a blowout of historic proportions, in order to block a shot, White rose well above the rim.

Following White’s crowd-pleasing rejection to defend his team’s rim, DeLaurier snagged the ball and tossed it ahead to freshman Tre Jones. Then the sensational-in-transition point guard used just two dribbles to advance the ball to the other end of the floor before lateraling to a trailing DeLaurier, who finished with the emphatic jam.

Indeed, it was a memorable sequence of events.
