A crowd of nearly 15,000 gathered Saturday night, March 8, at the BMO Harris Bradley Center to watch the Bucks fall to the Wizards, 114-107.Â The Bucks made a run in the second half, erasing a 28-point deficit but ultimately fell short.
I saw it in person, and several days later am still very impressed.Â
The dunk was engineered by by Rim Rocker J$, real nameÂ Josh Schedler who is a Senior Account Sales Executive with the team. Â
But on Saturday night, Schedler ran to the top of the 200 level at the BMO Harris Bradley Center and delivered a bounce pass that landed just past the court side seats and bounced right up right in front of the rim.Â A Rim Rocker teammate caught it and slammed it home.Â Sure it took two takes, but it was amazing and a testament to the skill level of the entire squad.Â
See it here on this Vine from the Bucks account.

Even with the losses this season, the Bucks organization puts on a good show.Â The teamâ€™s game day presentation is much improved and the in-game hosts keep the between-basketball action lively and very entertaining.Â Halftime, too, has been great, especially the Amazing Sladek.Â Â
Back to Bango.Â Whatâ€™s he up to next?Â According to this Reddit chat Iâ€™d watch for something with a BMX bike later in the season or next season.Â
