Mitchell's final dunk in a sudden-death round with Ra'shad James of the Reno Bighorns earned 49 out of 50 points, edging the 48 turned in by James.
Both players posted identical scores of 99 on two dunks in the final round before needing an extra round, which consisted of a one dunk. Howard assisted Mitchell on two of his dunks. Thanasis Antetokounmpo of the Delaware 87ers and Darren White of the Erie BayHawks rounded out the field.
