Video: Oklahoma State player blocks dunk with head inside basket

Oklahoma State took on Big 12 rival Iowa State in Ames last night, and Cyclones interior star Jameel McKay thought everything was gravy when he went up for a one-handed jam.

Except, Cowboys senior seven-footer Anthony Allen Jr. had other ideas. As can be seen in the video below, his head was inside of the basket and thus blocked McKay’s shot. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Allen blocked a shot using nothing but his noggin.

As a result, McKay finished with just six points rather than eight in No. 21 Iowa State’s 58-50 victory.

But the real star of this play is Allen. Keep in mind, despite being seven feet tall and 250 pounds, he is a reserve player and averages just 2.8 points and 2.3 rebounds per game. Oddly enough, though his head was in the basket and the reason that McKay’s shot was blocked, Allen himself was not credited with a blocked shot.

Despite that, regardless of how his basketball career pans out, Allen should have a hell of a story to tell for the rest of his life.
