Even though basketball has evolved into a perimeter game in recent years, there are some Pittsburgh Area High School players that still can score in the paint. While watching a young hooper "knock down" a long-range three-point shot can be exciting, nothing compares to a thunderous slam dunk to bring the crowd to their feet. The following student-athletes will be fun to watch this season playing "above the rim" on Tuesday and Friday evenings. Not only will they "bring down the house" with a lane penetrating slam, but look for that offensive rebound dunk to silence their opponent.
