People are still talking about the freshman's dunk against UT-Arlington.

One of the most memorable plays of the young college basketball season happened when the Texas Longhorns beat UT-Arlington 80-73 back on December 1 -- freshman point guard Kerwin Roach threw down a monster jam on the unsuspecting Mavericks.

The dunk was so good NBC Sports has named it the third-best for the entire 2015 calendar year, which dates back to last season:

That's lofty company considering how many big-time slams take place over the course of a basketball season, but what beat it out?

Two dunks by the same player, Kentucky center Willie Cauley-Stein, were each named No. 2.

And the top spot went to Notre Dame's Jerian Grant.
