JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Feb. 12, 2011) - The ETSU men's basketball team is making a habit of garnering airtime on ESPN Sportscenter's Top Plays.
 
Just three weeks ago, ETSU senior Justin Tubbs (Trussville, Ala.) was selected as the No. 1 play of the day with his 360 degree slam dunk against Lipscomb on Jan. 21 in the ETSU/MSHA Athletic Center. Well, the Buccaneers took it a step further on Friday night inside the Dome against Jacksonville, placing two plays in the Top 10 and once again taking the top slot.
 
Senior guard Micah Williams (Manchester) threw down a one-handed, alley-oop slam on a pass from his roommate and fellow senior Mike Smith (Vandalia, Mo.). That play was picked fourth in the countdown.
 
Meanwhile, Tubbs again took the show after receiving a pass from junior guard Adam Sollazzo (Tampa). Going toward the opposite end of the floor from where he dunked against Lipscomb, Tubbs executed the same 360-degree slam with even more flair. The Sportscenter hosts described it as a Winter X Games style dunk.
