This is always entertaining, and awesome. Devin Thomas, a high school basketball star for Central Dauphin in Harrisburg, Pa., threw down an incredible alley-oop dunk that shattered the backboard even caught the attention of some students in the school's hallway who had not been watching the game.

The highlight happened in the third quarter of Thursday night's Mid-Penn tournament championship game against Greencastle-Antrim. The basket put Central Dauphin up 39-30, but the game had to be suspended until Friday night at 7 p.m. ET. 11:02 remains in the game.

"I didn't think I dunked it that hard for it to break," Thomas said, via The Patriot-News. "Guess I did, so we'll continue this tomorrow."

Wake Forest fans must be happy to see this, since he will be wearing a Demon Deacon jersey this fall.
