04/04/2014 08:55 AM

Marcus Lewis, senior guard for the EKU Colonels, won the 2014 College Slam Dunk Contest in amazing fashion last night and EKU’s head coach, Jeff Neubauer, could not have been more proud.

Neubauer is also up for an honor. He’s one of 15 finalists for the 2014 Hugh Durham Award, which is given annually to the nation’s top mid-major coach.

The winner will be announced later today. Neubauer finished his ninth season as the Colonels’ head coach by getting the team to the NCAA Tournament. The Colonels nearly upset the No. 2 seed Kansas Jayhawks. They finished the season with a 24-10 record which is the second most victories ever for EKU.
