UT Arlington head coach Scott Cross does Drive-By Dunk Challenge, we are now a Scott Cross blog

That’s the rule.

NCAA Basketball: Georgia State at Texas Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Hey, so have you seen what all the cool kids have been doing lately?

It’s called the Drive-By Dunk Challenge, and the rules are simple: drive up to a house with a basketball hoop in the driveway, get out, dunk, get back in, drive away.

For a while, it’s appeared to be a fad limited to vertically fortunate teens who have a car and a tad too much time on their hands.

Now, a college basketball coach has joined in on the fun.

Scott Cross, the UT Arlington head coach and friend of the site, posted the below video to his Twitter on Monday:

Let’s break down the dunk here.

It starts with the pep talk.

“Come on Tyler, let’s go!” he yells to the youngest of his three sons, right before the both rush out of the car.

The two of them then run into this stranger’s driveway, where Tyler crouches down in front of the hoop. By this point, you know where this is going. The Division I head basketball coach is about to dunk over his son.

And he does.

If this doesn’t become the new Sun Belt logo, the commissioner should be fired.

And after that comes the getaway. Cross, with the rim still a-rattling, books it out of the driveway, nearly leaving Tyler in the dust. Credit to Tyler for hustling, though. Otherwise Cross very well might have driven off without him.

Who will be the next coach to try? I nominate Donyell Marshall.
