Easy: Mott’s Doug Anderson wins Palace slam dunk contest

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan — Mott Community College freshman Doug Anderson has never lost a dunk contest in his life. Now a few thousand basketball fans in metro Detroit know why.

The 6-6 forward from Kalamazoo won Michigan’s Slam Dunk Championship at the Palace on Saturday night in a landslide. The field was comprised of dunkers from high school and college, but no one challenged Anderson. He closed out the competition with a between-the-legs dunk from the baseline that earned him a perfect score.

Calvin College senior Matt Veltema won the overall 3-point shootout over Michigan State’s Mandy Piechowski.
