First, the 6-foot-5 senior guard from Seneca Valley High School shattered the backboard with one minute left in the Class AAA vs. AAA all-star game — thus ending the game and earning him the honor as someone who has broken a back board with a slam dunk. Fair enough.
Second, and probably more importantly to him, was that it got the attention of ESPN.
Bazzoli's dunk took down the rim and shattered the backboard after taking a pass from a teammate. The high scoring game ended with AAAA beating AAA, 134-113, and Bazzoli excitedly tweeting that ESPN had contacted him about using the clip.
Just found out @montourhoops just got an email from asking if they could use the dunking video! Keep your eyes on espn the next couple days!

Bazzoli was one of the top guards in the WPIAL this past season and is headed to Cedarville University, an NCAA Division II team that was 22-9 this past season.
Little did they know they were getting an ESPN SportsCenter star too.
