Oregon State basketball: Gary Payton II throws down one-handed dunk

Oregon State's Gary Payton II showed off his innate dunking skills against Oregon on Sunday night, following in the footsteps of his famous father and former Beaver with a huge one-handed slam right in the face of a Duck defender.

Freshman guard Stephen Thompson Jr. threw a nice bounce pass to Payton II in transition to set the senior up for a one-on-one shot at the basket. Payton II took full advantage of the soft defense and dropped one of the best dunks of his career. Take a look:

Oregon State and Oregon met for an NCAA record 345th time Sunday, and Payton's dunk will surely be one both teams will remember for a long time.
