Keith Hornsby, the son of musician Bruce Hornsby, is a freshman at UNC Asheville this season. And he can get up. Not a surprise, really. Have you ever watched the Piano All-Stars Hoops Challenge on MTV7? The old man had game.

He has one of the most impressive dunks you’ll see. Watch where he starts and sees how his offensive rebound turns into a rim-bender. Impressive stuff from the European summer league in Las Vegas. (TAKE THAT NBA LOCKOUT!)
