Hopkins point guard Paige Bueckers was the Star Tribune's Metro Player of the Year as a sophomore this past season and is one of the best players in the nation at her age.

Francesca Belibi just finished her junior year in Colorado, where she's already become famous for her in-game dunks (the first one coming when she was a sophomore).

Together, they make quite a duo. And even if this was only in a casual practice setting, where Bueckers, Belibi and the rest of their Team USA squad is getting ready for the FIBA U17 World Cup later this month in Belarus, it is a sight to behold.

The scene: Bueckers lobs it up; Belibi goes and gets it. A dunk happens, and their teammates go bonkers.

The best part is that there's video. Check it out via Bueckers' Twitter feed (@paigebueckers1) or on the blog.
