Posted by Janae Melvin on August 6, 2018 in On March 17, Ottawa University men’s basketball player Titus Rice soared to a second place finish at the 5th Annual NABC-NAIA Shoot & Slam, presented by U.S. Bank.

In conjunction with the 81st Annual NAIA Division I Men’s Basketball National Championship, four of the nation’s best high-flying dunkers wowed the crowd at Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, Mo.

Titus’ score of 91 out of 100 on two dunks earned him a trip to final showdown where he faced-off against Brandon Moss of LSU Alexandria (La.). In the finals, Moss edged Rice by 1 point to earn the Slam Dunk title, 95 to 94.
