Tyrus Hill showcases his dunking abilities, but one of them leads to posterizing Jeepy Faundo

MANILA, Philippines – Adamson rookie Tyrus Hill debuted his dunking abilities in the UAAP on Saturday, September 16, at the Araneta Coliseum. 

Hill embellished the Soaring Falcons’ victory over the Growling Tigers with two slams in the second half. 

The 6-foot-4 Filipino American opened the third period with a dunk that saw Hill accidentally posterize UST’s leading scorer Jeepy Faundo. 


In the final frame of the game, Hill pushed his luck for another slam that saw him go over UST center Steve Akomo. However, the play was called for travel.


Tyrus Hill collected a total of 3 points in the game that included his first dunk in the UAAP and a bonus free throw. 

Together with Adamson’s second leading scorer Kurt Lojera, Hill was recruited by Coach Franz Pumaren from California, as both players were part of the BallerZ team that participated in the AAU Basketball league. –
