Feb. 9, 2011

CHICAGO – Kansas guard Travis Releford’s impressive windmill slam against University of Missouri-Kansas City on January 5, 2011, was selected as a 2011 Dunk of the Year nominee, announced Feb. 7 by sports television production and event marketing company Intersport. The 2011 Dunk of the Year is wholly determined by fan voting and will be announced on a one-hour “Dunks of the Year” special airing on ABC April 2.

Each week for eight weeks, four incredible college dunk videos are released at the Dunks of the Year fan page on Facebook (www.facebook.com/dunksoftheyear). The top weekly vote-getters proceed to the Finals, which tip off March 7, and are highlighted within the ABC special.

Releford’s dunk is competing against three other dunkers in week five, including St. John’s Paris Horne, Georgetown’s Hollis Thompson, and Minnesota’s Rodney Williams.

To support Releford, fans can vote once a day and share their vote with their Facebook friends. Week five voting is open today and ends Sunday, February 13 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
