High Point University’s Corey Law has advanced to the final round of Dark Horse Dunker voting, it was announced on Monday. The winner of this week’s voting gets to compete in the College Slam Dunk Championship in Atlanta on ESPN. Fans can vote once a day at Collegeslam2013.com.

Law defeated Elizabeth City State’s Angelo Sharpless by a narrow margin in the semifinals, which ended Monday at 1 p.m. Law is now competing against Illinois State’s Tyler Brown for the Dark Horse Dunker title.

“State Farm Dark Horse Dunker” nominees are under-the-radar players who have what it takes to compete against the D-I field in Atlanta. The winner will participate in the Denny’s Slam Dunk Competition at the State Farm College Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships in Atlanta at 7 p.m. ET April 4 on ESPN. The “State Farm Dark Horse Dunker” Facebook bracket, which is a five-week knockout competition, began with 16 dunkers and is now down to two.

Law was selected for his “dynamic combination of power and elevation” shown in this submission video. The official statement reads: “Law flashes the in-game ability to dunk over anyone, and on the practice court, he can close a between-the-legs jam with ease.”

Law is a 6-foot-6, 215-pound redshirt-senior forward for the Panthers. He scored 876 points (8.1 ppg) and grabbed 684 rebounds (6.3 per game) in his four seasons. Law’s 684 rebounds rank second on High Point’s NCAA Div. I rebounding list.

Law is originally from Chesapeake, Va., and attended Deep Creek High School. He was an All-State selection and was named 2008 All-Tidewater Player of the Year and Southeastern District Player of the Year as a senior.
