The No. 6 seed USC Trojans beat the No. 7 seed Oregon Ducks 82-68 on Sunday night in the Sweet 16. With the victory, USC advances to the Elite Eight for the first time since 2001. And the highlight of the win was an incredible dunk from superstar big man Evan Mobley.
USC had a 72-60 lead with just under three minutes remaining when Mobley threw down a powerful two-handed jam on Oregon center Franck Kepnang. Check out this ridiculous poster dunk:

You can see why Mobley is likely to be a top-three pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. The USC freshman is a remarkable talent with crazy upside.
Mobley finished with 10 points (he only attempted six field goals, making four of them), eight rebounds, six assists, and two blocks in the victory.
The Trojans will likely need Mobley doing more incredible things in the Elite Eight in order to take down Gonzaga, the tournament favorite.
