Pepperdine guard defies gravity

Mike Miller writes: Pepperdine's Keion Bell doesn't care for Sir Isaac Newton. Gravity? Who needs it? The guard stands just 6-foot-3, yet is known as one of college basketball's high fliers, capable of throwing down nasty dunks and jaw-dropping moves at any moment. (He also can play a little; Bell's 18.5 points per game led the Waves last season.) He dunked over five people at the school's Midnight Madness event last year. This year, he upped it to seven -- and did it fairly cleanly (just a slight push off). There has to be a hidden trampoline, right? I'm with the guys at Rush the Court. Next year, Keion, try dunking over the entire student body. That'll be a real challenge. Mike Miller is college basketball editor for NBCSports.com.
