Tari Eason sent LSU basketball fans at Pete Maravich Assembly Center into a frenzy with a thunderous dunk on Tennessee's Olivier Nkamhoua during Saturday's Southeastern Conference matchup between the Tigers and the Volunteers

LSU burned Tennessee all game by converting turnovers into points, and Eason's one-handed slam dunk was no different.

Eason's teammates stole the ball from Tennessee's Kennedy Chandler as the Volunteers' guard worked his way across midcourt. Eason pivoted and sprinted back down the court on the fast break, and the ball found its way into the sophomore's hands. 

Nkamhoua tried to block the one-handed dunk attempt but was no match for Eason.
