FT. MYERS – Even though, senior guard and Tennessee commit Kwe Parker had only nine points on 4-of-11 shooting from the field in Friday’s opening City of Palms Classic game, a loss to Wheeler (Ga.), that didn’t stop him from putting on a show on Sunday night.

Parker, a Wesleyan Christian (N.C.) starter can jump. He made that known well before the dunk contest on Sunday that he used to display all the creativity he has with his plethora of jams.

The 6’2″, 175-pounder has serious ups and with his Twitter handle (@iJump_tooMuch), he has over a 17,000 person following on the social media site. He’ll likely put up some sweet jams for the Vols next fall.

—Below is the video of his third and final dunk in the second round. Parker already had the contest won, but that didn’t stop him from putting up a ridiculous one-handed 360 dunk. The players on the court behind him went crazy and ran over to celebrate with him. Take a look.

—This dunk is also from the second and final round as he used one of his teammates as a human prop. Parker dunked over him with ease and then slammed home a two-handed reverse jam.

—The first round dunk that got the gym loud and his ticket to the final round was this beauty. He tried it a couple of times before he finally hit home. Parker threw the ball off the wall and then picked it up in mid air off the bounce and proceeded to put down perhaps the best dunk of the night.

It’s hard to pick the best of these three. My favorite was his final dunk, the first shown here, but the third dunk (his best in the first round) was sweet. Wesleyan plays tomorrow in a consolation game against Bartow (Fla.), so there will be yet another chance to see Mr. Kwe Parker jump out of his shoes.
