Lisa Leslie, Candace Parker and Brittney Griner are female athletes that come to mind that have dunked in a basketball game.

Stanford signee Francesca Belibi from Regis Jesuit High School in Aurora, Colo. sent the crowd, from both sides, into a frenzy after she dunked during a game on Wednesday.

It was two of her game-high 32 points as Regis Jesuit beat Grandview, 79-52.

But it wasn’t the first time the 6-foot-1 Belibi has dunked. As a sophomore, she became Colorado’s first girls basketball player to dunk in a playoff game.

Belibi is a 5-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 3 forward and No. 23 overall player in the country, according to ESPN. She a two-time gold medalist while playing for the USA U16 national team in 2017 and U17 team this year.

What ESPN said: Ultra-athletic forward plays to the rim; quick and big first-step attack delivers to rim, creates mismatches; pounds the glass, scores vs. contact; rises on jumper with feathery touch in key; brings high energy effort to both ends of the floor; continues as an elite front court prospect in the class of 2019.
