Ross dunks his way to victory

A PACKED house witnessed Toronto Raptors shooting guard Terrence Ross take the top title in the 2013 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest in Houston.

The six-foot-six rookie wowed the crowd with an impressive array of technical dunks that included him leaping over a ball boy.

"I feel blessed, but it's still overwhelming," Ross said.

"I'm just trying to soak it all in.

"It was my favourite event to watch every year since I was a small child."
