The verdict is in: the Dunk Contest is officially back. Although last night's high flying showcase was marred by a less-than-ideal Conference vs. Conference team format, the action itself was enough to give flashbacks of the competition's glory days. In the end, Team East, led by some amazing acrobatics from Washington's John Wall, took home the win. Overall, All-Star Weekend's Saturday night festivities delivered: there were plenty of jaw-dropping dunks, ridiculous laughs, and a handful of stars getting involved in the action, including Toronto's own Drake. Check out all the best sneakers you may have missed after the jump.

Hold tight, because not all of yesterday's hardwood action was quite as laid back as the All-Star events. NCAA men's hoops provided plenty of knock-down, drag-out wars, including No. 1 Syracuse miraculously extending their undefeated run and No. 3 Florida vs. No. 14 Kentucky. Catch up in the gallery above.
