The loudest points Michigan scored in its 72-63 road win at Penn State on Wednesday night came from the right hand of Jordan Poole.

On a fast break in the first half, Poole (6-foot-4) dunked right over Penn State forward Julian Moore (6-foot-10) while absorbing a foul. It might be the best and-1 dunk in the Big Ten this season, and it landed the No. 2 spot on SportsCenter’s top 10 plays Thursday morning.

To make the highlight even better, Poole stared directly in the camera after quieting the Penn State crowd.

Poole, a freshman guard, ended with 13 points (double his season average) as No. 17 Michigan won its fourth game in a row. The dunk was part of a substantial first half run for the Wolverines, who led by 8 points at halftime. Michigan did trail in the second half, but John Beilein’s team closed out the game on a 23-15 run over the final 8 minutes.

Michigan closes out its regular season at Maryland on Saturday (Noon ET, ESPN).
