Bello advances to semifinals at Denny’s Slam Dunk Championship
Thursday, March 31, 2016

HOUSTON (March 31, 2016) – ETSU senior guard Deuce Bello (Greensboro, N.C.) advanced to the semifinals of the Denny Slam Dunk Championships Thursday night at the Berry Center in Cypress, Texas.

Bello ended the first round in second place following a 360-degree, between-the-legs slam from the baseline that thrilled the crowd and fellow competitors. However, unfortunately for the 6-foot-4 guard his night came to an end in the semifinal round.

For Bello, this was his final competition in an ETSU uniform following a 24-win season and a trip to the semifinals of the Vegas 16 Tournament earlier this week.
