Brandeis University senior forward Latye Workman of Brooklyn, N.Y., has an opportunity to compete with some of the top collegiate dunkers at the 2018 State Farm College Slam Dunk and 3-Point Contest, but it will take work on the part of Brandeis Judges fans to vote him in as the Dark Horse Dunker, a fan vote contest that matches 16 of the top college dunkers in a bracket-style competition to earn a spot at the Final Foul. Starting at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, February 13, you can visit www.DarkHorseDunker.com and vote once a day from each device in Latye's head-to-head matchup.
There will be four rounds of head-to-head voting before the Dark Horse Dunker is selected, so follow @BrandeisJudges and @CollegeSlam on Twitter and Facebook and @College_Slam and @BrandeisJudges on Instagram for updates on Latye's progress. The winner will be determined on March 16th with a berth in the final contest at the Final Four in San Antonio on the line. Workman is one of two Division III competitors in the bracket.
Latye is leading the Brandeis men's basketball team in rebounding (7.9 rpg), steals (30) and blocked shots (22) and is second in scoring this season (10.2 ppg). He has led the Judges in rebounding 16 times in 22 games and has recorded three double-doubles. The Judges are on the road this weekend at the University of Rochester on Friday night at 8 p.m. and at #10 Emory on Sunday afternoon.
