Tucker was challenged by former LSU Tiger Chris Johnson, whose best dunk was his first dunk of the final round. Johnson received a perfect 50 on a dunk where he started behind the baseline, passed it to himself and then went between his legs before throwing down a one handed reverse.

Blakely's first dunk was only given a score of 40 by the judges, but deserved better. Blakely did a backwards, 360 degree, Statue Of Liberty throw down.
