Really big man on campus

At 360 pounds, Kenny George doesn't jump very high. But he doesn't have to, either.

The University of North Carolina-Asheville basketball player can dunk without his feet ever leaving the floor.

At 7-foot-7, he's the tallest player in college or the NBA.

Two major knee injuries robbed him of nearly three full seasons. But George is beginning to make his mark on the court and above it.

UNC-Asheville is off to its best start in 23 years.

In case you're wondering, the big man wears really big sneakers.

His size 26 shoes are custom made by Nike. George's sneaks are even four sizes bigger than Bob Lanier's famous bronzed shoes in the Hall of Fame.
