Watch: Duke's Amile Jefferson Throws Down Powerful Dunk In Latest Scrimmage Clip

Amile Jefferson dunking.


Duke forward Amile Jefferson looks healthy in the latest highlight clip the program just released on Twitter.

In the short 20-second video, Jefferson takes a pass in the corner off a drive-and-kick from guard Luke Kennard. Freshman Javin DeLaurier was guarding Jefferson, but he had to help on the drive.

Jefferson recognizes he has a step, drives middle and throws down a slam on the unlucky frosh.

Jefferson doing that is a welcome sight for Blue Devil fans. His absence last season while dealing with a foot injury short-circuited any plans of a deep NCAA tourney run.

Duke will need Jefferson's experience and leadership in 2016-17, particularly with Harry Giles missing some time following knee surgery.
