Regis dunking sensation Fran Belibi talks going viral... twice

Regis Jesuit basketball star Fran Belibi visited the 9NEWS studio days after another slam dunk went viral.

DENVER — Fran Belibi is one of the most humble high school student-athletes you will ever meet.

Just days after throwing down another monster slam dunk that was seen by millions, Belibi still didn't realize how big the play had become.

"I think because I don't have social media, it doesn't really affect me as much, but I definitely have a bunch of people come up and tell me all the different things that are happening on social media," she said. "It's kind of just whatever, I still have to live my life a little bit."

In the Regis Raiders' win over top-ranked Grandview, Belibi stole the ball before breaking down court and throwing down a one-handed jam. It looked effortless, drawing the attention of pros and former professionals across the country.

She first went viral in 2017, after becoming the first girl in Colorado high school history to dunk in a game. That video was viewed more than 2.5 million times, and was even featured on ESPN SportsCenter's Top 10.

Belibi is now committed to play basketball at Stanford University where she will study medicine like her parents.

Watch the video above to see why the Cardinal was the best fit, where and how she practices her dunking, and her reaction to dunking in such a big game for her team.
