It was less than a week ago that Northern Arizona Suns guard Jalen Lecque threw down a Slam Dunk-worthy jam. The video racked up almost 300,000 views in six days.

Well, he just out-did himself.

In the fourth quarter of the NAZ Suns game against the Texas Legends, Lecque drove past a defender on the baseline, avoided a second, and went under the rim before throwing down the reverse.

Unbelievable.

Phoenix has had its fair share of high-flying dunkers over the last decade, from Hakim Warrick to Gerald Green to Derrick Jones Jr.

It looks like the 2020s are beginning with another waiting in the wings.

Lecque rose to viral fame as a high schooler with his dunks. He graduated from Brewster Academy in New Hampshire at the age of 19 as a fifth-year student after reclassifying following his junior year, qualifying him for the NBA.

The Suns signed Lecque as an undrafted free agent.

He is averaging 13.2 points in 25.3 minutes per game for the NAZ Suns.
