If you want to look for the nail in the coffin in No. 23 Iowa State’s 80-74 win over No. 11 West Virginia in the Big 12 championship on Saturday night, look no further than this insane alley-oop dunk from Deonte Burton

With the Cyclones leading 73-64, Nazareth Mitrou-Long lobbed a pass to a charging the 6-foot-4 senior. Burton, one of the nation’s nastiest finishes, lived up to that label with an absolute posterization of the West Virginia defender.

Burton finished with 16 points and five rebounds in the tournament title victory.
