The first highlight-reel dunk from Giddens came early on in the first half with Ohio State holding onto a 13-4 lead over the Gophers.

JaQuan Lyle threw a picture-perfect alley-oop pass that Giddens grabbed and threw down a thunderous two-handed reverse dunk.

Check it out in the video below.

As good as Giddens' first dunk was, his second one was arguably even more impressive.

This one came late in the first half as Lyle led a fast break and found Giddens for an incredible two-handed slam.
