Baylor's Bello more than a dunker
High flier has developed game, become a force on the other end of the floor too
WACO, Texas -- When Deuce Bello was a high school senior, Dime Magazine ranked him as the 19th-best dunker in world. Not the state, not the country -- the world.
Among those Bello topped in the listing: NBA high fliers Vince Carter, Dwyane Wade and J.R. Smith.
Something funny, though, happened when Bello arrived at Baylor last fall.
"I realized all that stuff didn't mean anything," he said."Being able to dunk wasn't going to get me on the court."
