The Dunk (Poster, Fannie Lou Hamer High School)

Few if any city championships are more coveted in American high school basketball than the New York City Public School Athletic League Championship. This 2017 nail-biter saw an amazing display of athleticism, teamwork and sportsmanship. Up 3 with a minute left in the championship game, this alley-oop from Shamar Carpenter to Charles Davis gave Fannie Lou Hamer a 54-49 lead over South Bronx Prep with 52.8 ticks left on the clock. Fannie Lou Hamer held on to win its second city championship. South Bronx Prep had been the only team to beat Fannie Lou Hamer. Two tough teams. One championship winner.
