Marqus Blakely, a native of Metuchen, N.J., posted a perfect score of 50 and a 47 en route to winning the 2010 College Slam Dunk Championship. The 6-5 forward led Vermont to a school record-tying 25 wins in 2010 and the school's fourth trip to the NCAA Tournament in its history. Blakely was one of only two players in the nation to lead his team in points, rebounds, assists, blocks and steals. He and Player of the Year Evan Turner of Ohio State were the only players in the nation to average at least 17 points, nine rebounds and three assists per contest.

Good luck to Marqus!
