Murdock's dunk caps Mustangs victory

Blake Murdock established two new career highs for himself Monday night when the Mount Mercy Mustangs drubbed Lincoln Christian, 101-71, at the Hennessey Recreation Center.

Murdock reached a career high with 18 points, based on 6-for-10 shooting and a pair of 3-pointers. And the Kennedy grad set another career high for the most dunks he's ever had in a single game.

One.

The milestone happened when he stole a pass near mid-court, drove to the bucket and raised himself above the rim for a slam that brought his teammates out of their chairs in celebration.

He'd never dunked in a game before. Ever. Anywhere.

"That would be the first one, actually," he said, smiling. "I've had plenty in practice, but it feels really good to finally get one in a game and get one down."
