Steve Enoch wins dunk contest at fan-friendly UConn First Night

(WTNH)–Are you ready for some UConn basketball?

Well, it’s here…and on Friday, it was the unofficial kickoff to the season, First Night.

The men’s and women’s teams got together to have some fun in front of the Gampel Pavilion crowd. It was a great turnout in Storrs, and fans got a sneak peek at this year’s teams.

There are lots of new faces on both Geno Auriemma and Kevin Ollie’s teams.

As always, the player introductions drew some of the greatest reactions. The players like to show they have more than basketball moves. Broken up into teams of Blue and White, they played a scrimmage.

That came after some other competitions, including a dunk contest.

The winner? Well, it was Norwalk’s Steve Enoch. The sophomore big man got 10’s for his winnnig slam.
