Carson-Newman basketball player makes SportsCenter Top 10

Dyer’s spectacular play came in at number 10 on ESPN SportsCenter’s top play countdown.

JEFFERSON CITY, Tenn. — A play made by Carson-Newman basketball player Ren Dyer made ESPN SportsCenter’s top 10 for a play he made on Monday night.

In the Eagles’ win against Coker, Dyer inbounded the ball off a defender’s back and dunked it. The play drew an excited reaction from Carson-Newman’s bench. 

“It was a good moment, it definitely was,” Dyer told WBIR on Tuesday.

He said he woke up Tuesday morning to a text from a friend telling him he made it and then many other messages came flooding in of the national recognition.

Dyer said this was kind of a redemption moment for a dunk that he missed last year where he almost put an opposing player on a poster. He said that for sure would have been a SportsCenter TOP 10 moment too.
