Justise Winslow Hurdles Stanford Player's Head To Block His Shot

In case you hadn't heard, Duke freshman Justise Winslow is pretty athletic. So athletic, in fact, that he can high-jump over opponents to block their shots, as happened tonight against Stanford in the Coaches vs. Cancer championship game.

Mitch McConnell's UK Campaign Ad Goes From Bad To Worse To Deleted
