PULLMAN, WA - MARCH 3: Washington State Cougars Men’s Basketball versus the Oregon State University Beavers at Beasley Coliseum - Washington State forward Efe Abogidi (0) Jack Ellis/CougCenter

Typically, I use this space every Monday morning to recap the week that was in WSU athletics. We are going to do things a bit differently today because overall, it wasn’t the best week for the Cougs. But, do you know what was pretty great?

Efemena Tennyson Abogidi.

I don’t think we have ever done a CougCenter poll of the top poster dunks in WSU history (and if we did we probably quit after No. 7), but Efe has to be a strong contender for No. 1 in any hypothetical contest.

Honestly, I would write more, but I’m too busy watching an endless loop of that dunk. So instead, here are some full highlights if you need more.

They opened up a big lead with imposing post play, then shut the door with a stunning play from one of their posts.

Efe Abogidi, the Washington State Cougars’ high-flying sophomore forward, launched from a few feet outside the restricted area with just under three minutes remaining in a four-point game. The 6-foot-10 Nigeria native put his defender on a poster, throwing down a dazzling one-handed jam that extinguished SMU’s momentum.
