Ja Morant didn’t quite pull a Vince Carter, but he wasn’t far off.
Morant had a monster game in Murray State’s first-round matchup against Marquette in the NCAA Tournament on Thursday, dominating across the board. His most emphatic play came when he dunked all over Joey Hauser early in the second half:

Morant recorded a triple-double in the game — the first in the NCAA Tournament since Draymond Green in 2012.
We knew he was a big-time player, but what’s impressive is that he showed up and did his best on the biggest stage.
