Junior Josh Thompson Wins The 2011 Madness Before Midnight Slam Dunk Contest By Dunking Over His Mom. Judge Darryl “Chocolate Thunder” Dawkins, A Big Fan. The 6-foot-5, 200-pound forward from Wagner College in Staten Island, N.Y., risked a tough welcome home had he not successfully completed a daring dunk that placed his mom at risk of a crushing blow.

Thompson wanted to do something that would make him stand apart from other competitors in the dunk contest held during Wagner’s Midnight Madness basketball event last Friday night. So he turned to the woman who brought him into the world, lining his mom up in front of the basket, with her back facing him.
