(WSIL) -- Dunks don't happen often, and they caught our attention this week. Dunks and a hefty milestone are featured in this week's list of Player of the Week nominees.
Our first nominee is NCOE junior center Joe Melton. Melton threw down a one-handed slam against Pope County Friday night in the GEC semifinal matchup. NCOE went on to win the tournament.
The second nominee is Mt. Vernon's Quani Rudd. Rudd came up with a steal and slammed home a reverse dunk in the Rams 66-63 win over Carbondale.
Our third nominee is Woodlawn's Blake McKay. McKay reached 2,000 points for his career this past week.
Voting runs through Wednesday. The winner will be announced Thursday.
