Michigan State senior Adreian Payne didn’t win the college basketball slam dunk contest last night. He finished third behind Eastern Kentucky’s Marcus Lewis and Baylor’s Cory Jefferson.

However, if the contest wasn’t a progressive round by round affair, and instead awarded the title to whoever threw down the best dunk of the night, Payne would be the king. All the 6’10” 240-pound forward did for his first attempt of the evening was throw down a ridiculous, awe-inspiring 360º double-clutch dunk.

See for yourself:
