POSTERIZED: Making up for lost time

We've finally made it back from our treacherous 6,492 mile, 23 day road trip. Because I spent a majority of the time at the wheel or on press row, I didn't get a chance to capture as many #POSTERIZED entries as I would like.

The college hoops world didn't hit the pause button while we were travelling, so I'm making up for lost time.

Here are a bunch of the #POSTERIZED dunks from the past week or so that may have gone unnoticed.

Towson's Erique Gumbs against UNC-Wilmington, 1/28

Is this a fantastic dunk? No, it's not. I'm not even sure it's #POSTERIZED-worthy by itself. But when you add the fact that Towson hadn't won a game since December 2010, and that this dunk sealed the victory, then, yes, it's absolutely #POSTERIZED-worthy.

Vanderbilt's Lance Gouldbourne against Middle Tennessee State, 1/28

On a team with Festus Ezeli, John Jenkins, Jeffery Taylor and Brad Tinsley, Lance Gouldbourne doesn't get too much publicity. But this guy can fly. He did it a couple times last season, and he did it against MTSU this weekend.

Syracuse's Dion Waiters against West Virginia, 1/28

Dion Waiters may not get very vertical when he dunks, but he makes up for it by throwing down with ferocity. This dunk may not look overly flashy, but trust me, it's more than worthy of a #POSTERIZED mention.

Colorado's Andre Roberson against Arizona State, 1/26

He may only be a sophomore, but this kid can flat-out fly. He's arguably the best dunker in the Pac-12 and one of the best leapers in the country.

North Carolina's Harrison Barnes against North Carolina State, 1/26

Oh, it's just a run-of-the-mill Black Falcon one-handed super-tip-jam. Since Barnes loves to play on the perimeter so much, and because he's got such a freakish wing-span, he is a nightmare for any defender trying to box him out. For North Carolina State, this is what a nightmare looks like.

DePaul's Jamee Crockett against Rutgers, 1/25

There is nothing DePaulful about this jam. Crockett throws down a nasty two-handed jam against Rutgers, which helped give the Blue Demons their second conference win of the season.
